Amazon withdraws painted children's drinking tumblers

Amazon has withdrawn a set of painted children's drinking glasses after cadmium was found in the paint. In the withdrawn Amazon glasses cadmium was found close to the rim where the risk of ingesting it was highest. The Amazon glasses were produced under license from Disney by a company called Half Moon Bay which said it was "Investigating this product and its manufacture in light of the reported findings of Plymouth University". Dr Turner, who has tested a wide range of painted glasses, said: "We get these two chemicals in most of the glassware that we test." Tesco said all of its drinking glasses complied with EU and UK safety standards and those examined by Dr Turner had also been independently tested "To show compliance" with a voluntary standard on lead and cadmium.
