Shrek glasses pulled out from McDonald's stores

Shrek designed glasses have been pulled out yesterday at McDonald's
store outlets due to cadmium content.

And good thing we don't have those Shrek Glasses here in the Philippines 'coz those were made only for McDo outlets in the US.

12 million pieces of Shrek collectible glasses were reportedly recalled because the paints on the glass designs were found to have
cadmium, which according to reports softens bones and can cause liver or kidney problems.

But that's not the only problem of McDonald's. Reportedly, about 7
million glasses have been sold already. And now, they're appealing to those who have it to just stop using them or simply return them and ask for a refund.

The glasses were a marketing strategy for the movie "Shrek Forever
After" which opened 2 weeks ago and is drawing much in the boxoffice.
There are 4 designs for the glasses featuring the main characters of
the film: Shrek, Princess Fiona, Puss in Boots and Donkey.

Here in the Philippines, we only have Shrek toy collectibles in
McDonald's Happy Meals and a special tumbler.
