Stanley stainless mugs

Yes, Stanley uses lead in its manufacturing process for its cups, but they only pose a risk of lead exposure if the cover on the bottom of the tumbler comes off and exposes the pellet used to seal the cup's vacuum insulation,” a Stanley spokesperson told TODAY."

Basically there is no danger as long as the cup isn't damaged.
 
No human contact points. Show the MSDS. Instead of Pb solder Ag solder would be safer (if even it's an issue and not a media hype). Ag solder would lead to a price >.

Anybody want to bet that happens with all the news reports on the lead solder?
They can safely bump the price anyway with how popular the cups are, so why not blame it on changing the solder?
 
Stanley tumblers and bottles
Like I said, neither Stanley nor Target describes these items as being a "cup". To normal sane people, a cup is much smaller than a tumbler, a bottle or a mug. Perhaps that is the brain size of some self-annointed social media "influencers" who mistakenly call these a "cup".
 
They won't last. They're ridiculous. Too many gullible stupid Americans fall for this garbage.
 
Probably for weight, balance and some insulation. If they lowered the center of gravity and used a better insulation such as Kevlar or equivalent there wouldn't be a potential toxicity issue. All the potential positive safety data they can produce going forward isn't going to mitigate the damage that has already occurred. The marketing managers didn't work with the designers and manufacturing engineers who all didn't bounce this shit off the lawyers. This shit ain't gonna fly.
