McDonald’s Makes Health-Concerned Recall (Not Food-Related)

McDonald’s is recalling 4 of its Shrek-themed collectors edition drinking glasses because traces of Cadmium, a known carcinogen, has been found in the painted designs. The traces of the toxin are minute, but McDonald’s has voluntarily recalled the products because they’re concerned that the chemical element, used in the manufacturing of batteries and found in cigarette smoke, could contribute to adverse health effects such as bone softening, as well as kidney and lung problems. Although children won’t get sick right away from the Cadmium in the glasses, their long-term health could be affected if the paint rubs off on their hands, or if they lick, kiss or otherwise ingest some of the toxic paint. It should be noted that long-term, life threatening health risks including cancer and kidney failure are also associated with the ingestion of every single item on McDonald’s menu.
