Despite the ogre’s popularity in theaters this summer, Shrek’s steamware line at McDonald’s has received less than stellar reviews. Please see this link for information about the recall of drinking glasses that are part of the McDonald’s Shrek promotion. There are elevated levels of cadmium in the paint on the glasses. The danger comes from a child holding the glass and then putting their hands in their mouths.
While the level of cadmium is just above the level of concern, McDonald’s is taking every caution and has issued a recall. Consumers are advised to immediately stop using these glasses. Beginning Wednesday June 9th, customers can return their Shrek glasses to any McDonald’s location for a full refund.
