McDonald’s $3 Glass Recall: Shrek Payoff at what costs?

By Alan Ng - Jun 9, 2010

Earlier on, we informed you that Mcdonald’s has made the decision to refund customers $3, following on from the Shrek Glasses recall after possible cadmium health risks. We are wondering if customers are satisfied with the extra $1, knowing that cadmium could cause serious problems if diagnosed.

After the recall occured, we posted a report here, giving you a detailed briefing on the potential health risks that cadmium could cause to your body. Possible symptoms include vomiting and diarrhea, while extreme cases could lead to kidney disease or cancer.

While some of you may be happy over the extra $1 for the $2 they paid for the Shrek glass, how would customers feel if they, or their children developed some of the symptoms mentioned above.

Of course, this may never happen after Mcdonald’s acted fairly quick over the issue – but we wonder what repercussions this $1 extra payout could have. Mcdonald’s may find themselves in the midst of multiple lawsuits if they are not careful.

What are your thoughts on the $3 refund for your Shrek Glass?
