McDonalds Shrek Glasses Recall: How it started?

Yesterday we revealed that McDonald’s had voluntarily recalled 12 million glasses, these glasses featured designs to promote “Shrek Forever After”, however the paint used contained a toxic chemical element.

Although it was a voluntary recall it looks as if McDonald’s had no real choice, apparently it all started when an anonymous tip reached Jackie Speier (Office of Congresswoman), this information was then passed on to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, who are now working with McDonald’s on the recall.

You have to admire McDonald’s for recalling the glasses despite no reported injuries reported, here is a an official statement from the company “McDonald’s determined in an abundance of caution that a voluntary recall … is appropriate,”

The real question is where this anonymous tip came from, I like to think that it was an arch enemy of Ronald McDonald, however it is far more likely that someone who worked with the production of the glasses reported their concerns.
