McDonald's toxic Shrek glass recall; HEALTH.
The fast food giant urged people to immediately stop using the glasses because painted designs on them contain cadmium, a carcinogen that can cause bone softening and serious kidney problems.
The glasses were being sold for $2 (pounds 1.45) each in the United States to promote new film Shrek Forever After.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission, which announced the recall said the amounts of cadmium were "slightly above the protective level".
McDonald's said there are no Shrek glasses on sale in the UK.
