McDonald's Recall: 'Shrek' Glasses Contain Toxic Metal Cadmium

LOS ANGELES — Cadmium has been discovered in the painted design on "Shrek"-themed drinking glasses being sold nationwide at McDonald's, forcing the burger giant to recall 12 million of the cheap U.S.-made collectibles while dramatically expanding contamination concerns about the toxic metal beyond imported children's jewelry.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, which announced the voluntary recall early Friday, warned consumers to immediately stop using the glasses; McDonald's said it would post instructions on its website next week regarding refunds

This is scary. I myself bought about 4 of these a few days back.

    I read this earlier today - it's just sad that things like this make it into so many homes before the problem is recognized.

    I'm sure Dreamworks is happy to know that McDonald's spared no expense in creating such high quality and safe products for their cross-promotions.
