McDonald’s Recalls Shrek Glasses
McDonald’s is issuing a recall to almost 12 milllion drinking glasses sold in Canada in the United States. These Shrek glasses were part of the promotional items for the latest installment of the animation movie, Shrek Forever After.
The US company who made the Shrek drinking glasses for McDonald’s says it only learned yesterday that the paint they used for the decoration contains the toxic metal cadmium.
This recall was initiated after Representative Jackie Speier received an anonymous tip last week. Studies have found that cadmium is indeed present in the Shrek glasses.
McDonalds, after learning of the problem, voluntarily issued the recall in cooperation with the congresswoman and the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
