McDonald's is offering $3 refunds for the $2 Shrek drinking glasses sold at its restaurants that were tainted with cadmium. Restaurants will begin giving the refunds today.

The "Shrek Forever After 3D" glasses were recalled last week when the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced that low-levels of the heavy metal were found in
the paint of the characters on the glasses. The levels were just above the threshold for what would be considered acceptable under new federal standards that are being developed and are not considered toxic, the CPSC said.
