WASHINGTON, D.C. – The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the McDonald’s, announced a voluntary recall of the Shrek Forever After 3D Collectable Drinking Glasses.
The total number of recalled glasses is somewhere in the 12 million range. Long term exposure to Cadmium has been linked to cancer. Consumers should stop using these products immediately.
The recall was put into effect when regulators learned that the designs on the glasses contained the toxic metal, cadmium.
The glasses were sold at McDonald’s restaurants nationwide from May 2010 to June 2010.
