McDonald's to refund Shrek-glass purchases

June 9, 2010 (CHICAGO)

The "Shrek" themed glasses were recalled last week because they're tainted with the toxic medal, cadmium.

Starting Wednesday, customers can return the glasses and fill out a refund slip.

McDonald's says it will refund $3 for every glass. Customers paid a $1.99 for them with a food purchase or $2.49 without a food purchase.

Seven million of the Shrek glasses were sold. Cadmium can cause kidney, lung and bone damage, especially in children.
