McDonald’s to Recall Glasses - Elevated Cadmium

Ok ok I'm not doing an article on McDonald's as a gourmet food - even its Angus pattie did not cut it for me (it was tasteless!).

However - the latest scare - is that they are recalling their promotional glassware (i.e. buy a meal deal and get a cool glass) in the United States.


12 million glasses were recalled.

Apparently the cadmium was not in the glass - put the pictures of Shrek adorning the glassware.

The only "glass" promotion in New Zealand -  is for Coke glasses anyway - so hey guys no panic here.

I would like to know more about cadmium though!
