Japan McDonald’s recalls flawed giveaway glasses

McDonald’s in Japan said Wednesday it was recalling giveaway glass tumblers after 78 people reported being injured by the Olympic-themed freebies.

The fast food giant said it had received 130 complaints after handing out the tumblers to purchasers of “Value Sets”, which included fries and a soft drink, during their “Olympic Cheer Coke Glass Campaign” in June and July.

McDonald’s said they gave away six million tumblers in Japan, some of which had “glass protrusions” on their edges or insides because of a manufacturing error.
