Recalls: McDonald's Shrek Glasses

Yuck, the UnHappy Meal! McDonald's is recalling 12 million Shrek drinking glasses because the design contains cadmium. Cadmium is extremely toxic and is used in producing batteries and other products. According to a New York Times piece, "Walt Riker, a McDonald’s spokesman, said that 12 million glasses were intended for distribution in the United States and that about 7.5 million had gotten into the hands of consumers. He said the company would refund the $2 purchase price to consumers and that the company would provide information on its Web site next Tuesday on how to return the glasses.
