McDonald's Recalls 12 Million Shrek Forever After™ Drinking Glasses

Well this is a recall that affects me as my wife bought a full set of these glasses. Today the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced that McDonald's is voluntarily recalling the 4 Shrek Forever After™ drinking glasses featuring Shrek, Fiona, Puss n' Boots and Donkey. These are 16 ounce glasses that sold for $2 at McDonalds.

Apparently some of the pigment in the paint used on the outside of the glasses contains cadmium, a naturally occurring element that with long-term use can be a carcinogen and cause bone softening and kidney problems.  McDonald's says "the glassware was evaluated by an independent third-party laboratory, accredited by the CPSC, and determined to be in compliance with all applicable federal and state requirements at the time of manufacture and distribution. However, in light of the CPSC’s evolving assessment of standards for consumer products, McDonald’s determined in an abundance of caution that a voluntary recall of the Shrek Forever After glassware is appropriate."

To return your glasses and get your money back, visit beginning Tuesday, June 8th or call 800.244.6227.
