McDonald’s Recalls Shrek Promotional Glasses | DC Metro Area Personal Injury Law Blog

5 stars

On Friday, June 4, 2010, McDonald’s announced a voluntary recall of some 12 million Shrek-themed promotional glasses that it sold in May and June, after finding trace amounts of cadmium in the cartoon designs baked onto them. Cadmium, a naturally occurring element, is a known carcinogen (cancer-causing substance) that has been linked to several other health issues.

If you have any of the pint-size McDonald’s glasses featuring images of the characters Shrek, Fiona, Puss n’ Boots, or Donkey, you are advised to stop using them immediately.

McDonald’s will be offering a full cash refund for the glasses (valued at $3 per glass), which may be returned to any McDonald’s restaurant location beginning Wednesday, June 9. Full details are available on a special part of the McDonald’s website. You may also obtain information from their toll-free number at 1-800-244-6227.
