McDonald’s & Maytag Issue Product Recalls

McDonald’s Recalls Shrek Drinking Glasses
 
Twelve million “Shrek Forever After 3D” drinking glasses are being voluntarily recalled by McDonald’s, in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
 
The recall, announced on June 4, 2010, applies to four styles of Shrek glasses that were being sold for $2 each as a promotional tie-in with the movie “Shrek Forever After.”
 
The designs on the glasses were found to contain the carcinogen cadmium. Long-term exposure to cadmium can cause serious health effects including kidney, lung, intestinal or bone damage.
 
For additional information, contact McDonald’s toll-free at (800) 244-6227 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday or visit the firm’s website at www.mcdonalds.com/glasses.
 
Maytag Recalls Unsafe Dishwashers
 
Certain Maytag dishwashers sold between 2006 and 2010 pose a serious fire hazard as a result of an electrical failure in the dishwasher’s heating element.
 
Maytag is voluntarily recalling about 1.7 million of these dishwashers, in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
 
Dishwashers sold under the names Maytag®, Amana®, Jenn-Air®, Admiral®, Magic Chef®, Performa by Maytag® and Crosley® with plastic tubs and certain serial numbers are subject to the recall.
