McDonald’s Announces Recall on Shrek Themed Drinking Glasses

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and McDonald’s have announced a voluntary recall of the Shrek Forever After 3D Collectible Drinking Glasses, due to a potential cadmium risk.

The recall affects about 12 million units. The designs on the glasses contain cadmium, which produces a risk of adverse health effects after long term exposure. No injuries have been reported. The glasses were sold exclusively at McDonald’s from May 2010 to June 2010 for approximately $2. McDonald’s asks consumers to immediately stop using the glasses, and information on how to obtain a full refund can be found at
