McDonald’s Shrek Glass Recall: 12 Million Glasses Contain Cadmium

By Jamie Pert - Jun 4, 2010

It seems as if every week another major company announce a recall, this week is no different as we are hearing that McDonald’s are recalling 12 million Shrek glasses due to contamination concerns.

It is thought that the Shrek-themed glasses recalled feature a painted design, apparently this painted design contains traces of Cadmium, long-term exposure to Cadmium has previously been linked to kidney problems and bone softening.

There are four different designs to look out for, they all promote the upcoming movie “Shrek Forever After”, designs include paintings of Donkey, Puss in Boots, Shrek and Princess Fiona.

If you own one of these glasses the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recommend that you immediately stop using the glasses, a McDonald’s spokesman recently stated that the amount of Cadmium that the glasses contain is very slight, however “”slightly above the protective level”.
