My family and friends participated in the House Party sponsored by McDonald's in May. Today, McDonald's issued a press release for the recall of their Shrek glasses. I wish the standards of testing were higher so that these type of products would stop being recalled once children drink and play with them. Thanks McDonald's for stepping up and taking care of the matter.
Dear House Party Hosts and Guests,
We value your participation in our recent McNuggets® & Shrek Forever After™ House Party, and our relationship with you and your family as customers. That is why we'd like to make you immediately aware that we are voluntarily recalling the Shrek Forever After glassware we gifted to you as part of your Party Packs. As noted by the Consumer Product Safety Commission, while the glassware is being recalled in an abundance of caution, the glassware is not toxic. This recall does not affect the Shrek Forever After Happy Meal toy collection.
Please click here for the official press release and here for frequently asked questions and more information.
At McDonald's®, we are parents ourselves and keep up with all of the evolving new science that relates to products for our children, so we thought you'd appreciate the quick heads up. For those who received the glassware as part of the Party Pack, please dispose of the glassware as you deem appropriate. As a token of our appreciation for your understanding and this inconvenience, we will be sending all McDonald’s McNuggets and Shrek Forever After House Party hosts a $10 McDonald’s Arch Card. Hosts should receive them in the next 2-3 weeks. For those of you who purchased additional glassware at our restaurants, please visit www.mcdonalds.com/glasses beginning early next week for instructions on returning glassware and requesting a refund. Please share this information with other party guests and party hosts as appropriate as well.
Thank you for your support and understanding. For any additional questions, please contact McDonald’s toll-free number at 1-800-244-6227.
The McDonald's Team
