McDonald's Recalls Shrek Glasses


Thanks McDonalds. I have two of those Shrek glasses sitting in my dishwasher right now. And today I hear that McDonald's is now "voluntarily" recalling these glasses because they have Cadium on them! Cadium is a carcinogenic..a seriously toxic chemical that can lead to serious health problems. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission issued the recall early this morning.

My kids have used those darn glasses. Thankfully just once, but that is still one time to many. I am so angry with McDonald's right now, and the statements coming from Mcky D's is certainly not helping my mood:

McDonald's says it is asking customers to stop using the glasses "out of an abundance of caution." (So the bosses over at the Mighty Arches are just being extra cautious....a little toxic chemical never hurts anyone, right?)

"We believe the Shrek glassware is safe for consumer use," McDonald's USA spokesman Bill Whitman said. "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."

Are you kidding me? Safe?!

If you can't trust Ronald McDonald, who can you trust?  Sheesh.

You can read more about the recall here, if you haven't already.
