Sitting on the ledge of my window...

...in my kitchen...are these four glasses.












And just in case you have been living under a rock over the last few days were not aware of the situation, here is an article about the recall on all four of the Shrek glasses sold at McDonald's.

McDonald's Recall: 'Shrek' Glasses Contain Toxic Metal Cadmium

Now, I must say, I didn't take the hint from God about not eating at McD's when the one in our town burnt down and was closed for months and months. I simply drove down the interstate about 5 miles and ate at another one.

But I'm not sure if I should avoid this hint. It's a pretty big one. You'd think a McDonald's buring down would be big enough, but I think bone softening, kidney problems, and hindering brain development might just be a red flag for me.

Cadmium is a carcinogen that research shows also can cause bone softening and severe kidney problems. Research also suggests that it can, like lead, hinder brain development in the very young.

Of course, there's Maegan's perspective: "Yeah, and I must say...after you've eaten a meal from McDonald's, I think Metal Cadmium is the LEAST of your worries!"

So true.

When will I learn?

We no longer eat at a lot of fast food joints. McD's hit my list when a lot of the 1yr happy meal pics came out. They also use corn as a filler. We don't eat any corn products in our home, so eating out is really hard anyways. I say avoid mcd's like they are the plague you will feel lots better :-)

Just another way Mc'D's is trying to kill us all.

I'm so glad you appreciate my honest comment!!! :) Just remember, it's coming from a former McDonald's junkie who is completely rehabilitated and now cannot stand the stuff!!! You can do it! I know you can! :)
