Shrek glasses from McDonalds.

I have these and recently overheard that there was a recall on them. Do you think it's too late to return them for a refund? Was the recall for something harmful, should I keep and use them?

  • There was a recall, but now I don't remember what it was for. We didn't get any this time around and I was bummed that we didn't. I collect them (even if we don't use them). It has been almost a year so I would think it's too late to return them.

  • I think it was lead paint instead of food safe paint not sure, I wouldn't use them though. Look at and see if you can find the reason and if you can still return them.

  • If an item is recalled, it is never too late to return them.

  • it was for lead in the paint.
    To be safe,just don't drink out of them,just catergorize them as a collectible. I doubt they'd take them back now

  • yes it was the paint, and it wasnt a full recall it was ur choice if u wanted to return them, and not all places were giving refunds. You would have to contact the manufacturer of the glasses.

  • Not lead in the paint. It was because the Cadmium level in the paint was too high. You can always return them. I would not use them.

  • Keep them as collectibles if they won't take them back. Just don't use them!

  • I got one at a garage sale. My son has drank out of it a few times. Should I be concerned? He won't be anymore.
