State Assemblyman calls for investigation into Millville manufacturer of 12 million cups for McDonald's
BY TOM HESTER SR.
Cadmium, a known carcinogen, has been discovered in the painted design on "Shrek''-themed drinking glasses sold nationwide by McDonald's forcing the hamburger chain to recall 12 million of the glasses made by a Millville-based glass company.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a voluntary recall Friday. McDonald‘s said it is asking customers to stop using the glasses "out of an abundance of caution.''
The glasses were manufactured by ARC International and were to be sold from May 21 through June. About 7 million glasses have been sold and another 5 million are either in stores or have not been shipped.
