article imageCoca-Cola recalls drinking glasses

By Richard Mccallum     Nov 22, 2010 in Business
Atlanta - The soft drink giant has begun a voluntary recall of 88,000 sets of drinking glasses which were created for collectors in the USA.
The decorative collector's glasses were painted to resemble cans of Coca-Cola.
Reps from the company have revealed that low levels of cadmium and lead have been detected in the paint on the outside of the glasses.
Coke has stated that the levels of the toxic metal detected on the product which was sold on-line and in stores
in March do not pose a health threat or safety hazard.
An unidentified spokesman for Coke said the glasses, "did not meet our expectations..."
The glasses were manufactured in China and some of the sets depicted popular comic book characters such as Wonder Woman and Superman.
Lab tests which were conducted by the Associated Press on the drinking glasses concluded that the Coca-Cola glasses contained 16% to 30.2% of lead and traces of cadmium.
The United States federal limit on lead permissible in children's products is .003
