McDonald's Recalls 12 Million ‘Shrek Glasses’

Collectables found to be tainted with cadmium

McDonald's has recalled 12 million "Shrek Forever After 3D" collectable drinking glasses after after finding they contain traces of cadmium, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said on Friday.

The 16 ounce glasses were sold for $2 at McDonald’s restaurants in May and June, the CPSC said. The metal was found on four designs: Shrek, Fiona, Puss n’ Boots, and Donkey.

Long term exposure to cadmium can cause adverse health effects, according to CPSC.

McDonald's issued the voluntary recall "out of an abundance of caution."

The film, which opened on May 21, has earned more than $211 million worldwide.
