News Alert: McDonald’s Shrek Glass Recall

Posted by on June 4, 2010

Cadmium, a carcinogen has been found on McDonald’s Shrek glasses. The fast food giant voluntarily recalled 12 million of the US-made, movie-themed collectibles.  The Shrek glass recall also raises concerns about cadmium contamination in imported children’s jewelry.

Research shows that long-term exposure to cadmium, which is used to create reds and yellows in paint, can cause adverse health affects, including softening of the bones and severe kidney problems.  According to an article by the Huffington Post, CPSC spokesman Scott Wolfson said “A very small amount of cadmium can come to the surface of the glass, and in order to be as protective as possible of children, CPSC and McDonald’s worked together on this recall.”

Manufacturers of all kinds, not just glassware producers, can prevent a recall of this magnitude by closely tracking their materials sources with an ERP system such as Microsoft Dynamics NAV.
