Not sure where to post but very important.

McDonald’s recall Shrek Glass.It seems that McDonald’s found that Shrek Glasses are painted with a toxic metal.Over 12 million of Shrek Glass are recalled by McDonald’s.The hamburger chain McDonald’s on Friday called on consumers to stop using and, if possible, return 12 million glasses decorated with the faces of the characters of the cartoon Shrek, because painting is cadmium, which implies a risk for health.

Safety Commission Consumer Product, “in cooperation” with McDonald’s, announced through a statement that “the so-called volunteer” to return the glasses Shrek. “Consumers should stop using” vessels, he warned.

These vessels, made in America, were sold by McDonald’s as part of the film premiere of the new episode of the Shrek saga between May and June. They were sold in restaurants in the chain to two dollars apiece. McDonald’s said that the vessels were not marketed in Europe.

They are involved in this case the glasses decorated with the figure of the ogre Shrek, and the other three models in the library with the main characters of the cartoon of DreamWorks: Princess Fiona, Puss in Boots and Donkey.

Cadmium is considered a carcinogen by the U.S. authorities. According to the World Health Organization, cadmium has a toxic effect that particularly affects the kidneys, skeletal and respiratory system.

The statement asserts that the appeal was decided “a precaution” and that no incidents have been reported with the matter.

“It is illegal to sell or attempt to sell a product called a return,” he said.
