Shrek Glass Recall. The Shrek glasses sold at McDonald's were a hit like the movie but there is something wrong with those glasses: dangerous metal called cadmium has been discovered in those glasses so if you happen to have bought one, do not use it. Cadium can have bad effects on health if a person is exposed to it for a long period of time. This is the reason why McDonald's is recalling the 12 million Shrek glasses it has sold. But according to McDonalds although traces of cadium is found in the Shrek glasses, it is still safe to use but "out of an abundance of caution" they have decided to recall all the 12 million glasses.
This will surely affect McDonald's a lot, but it is good that they make the recall. McDonald's USA spokesman Bill Whitman said:
"We believe the 'Shrek' glassware is safe for consumer use, however, again to ensure that our customers receive safe products from us, we made the decision to stop selling them and voluntarily recall these products effective immediately."
