McDonald's has issued a recall for 12 million "Shrek Forever After 3D" drinking glasses after learning they are tainted with cadmium, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said.

Cadmium is a heavy metal that has recently gained attention as numerous Chinese manufacturers who have been forbidden from using lead in paints on products shipped to the U.S. have substituted cadmium. In this case, the glasses were made in the U.S. by ARC International of Millville, N.J. Cadmium, like lead, is a heavy metal that can be dangerous, particularly to children.
