MT. ARLINGTON, N.J., May 22, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Charles Products, Inc. (CPI) announced today that it is voluntarily recalling shot and pint glasses identified below sold exclusively through M&M'S World retail stores in New York, Las Vegas, Orlando and London.  

M&M Glassware

CPI is recalling the following shot and pint glasses:

Glasses with an image of the Red M&M'S character and the words "Hard on the outside, sweet on the inside;"

Glasses with an image of the Blue M&M'S character and the words "Who's your candy?;" and

Glasses with an image of the Green M&M'S character and the words "Eye candy."

Through its internal compliance and independent laboratory product testing program, the company became aware that the glassware may exceed the Food and Drug Administration's ("FDA") guidance levels for leachable lead and cadmium.  Both lead and cadmium are heavy metals found in the environment that accumulate in human bodies.  Both can cause serious health complications at high levels.  These glasses should therefore be returned and should not be used for the consumption of beverages, alcoholic or otherwise.

1,202 pint glasses and 6,335 shot glasses have been sold between the dates of January 8, 2014 and April 16, 2014.  No illness related to this product has been reported to date.  The recall only applies to the SKU #s below and no other products are affected.

The products that are subject to this recall are only the pint and shot glasses with printing on the inside. A picture of the label located on the bottom of each glass is also included.
