McDonald’s(R) USA voluntarily recalls Shrek Forever After(TM) Glasses


Instructions for Returning Glasses Will be Posted on Company’s Web Site

Oak Brook, IL — In collaboration with the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), and as a precautionary measure, McDonald’s USA today issued a voluntary recall of its four Shrek Forever After(TM) glasses recently offered in its U.S. restaurants. Customers should stop using the glasses and visit beginning June 8th for instructions on how to return them and get a refund.
