McDonald’s Recalls 12 Million Shrek Glasses

If you have any of the McDonald’s “Shrek Ever After” Glasses at your house  THROW THEM OUT!!!  Yesterday, McDonald’s recalled 12 million of these due to potentially dangerous levels of the metal cadmium which have been detected in the paint on the decorative images. Per the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), consumers should stop using the glasses immediately and the Web site cautions that long term exposure to cadmium can cause adverse health effects.  You can read the CPSC recall report here. On Monday, McDonald’s is supposed to announce how you can obtain a refund of these glasses.  You can visit their Web site for more information.
