Viral Social Media Post Shows The Truth About Lead In Stanley Cups
Amid the surging popularity of Stanley tumblers on social media platforms, a concerning post has sparked a shocking health and safety debate.
STANLEY CUPS CONTAIN LEAD
The insulated steel beverage containers, known for their array of colors and temperature-preserving qualities, have come under scrutiny for allegedly containing lead.
Stanley PMI, the company behind these trendy products, has stepped forward to address these rumors. According to their statement, a sealing material used in the base of their tumblers contains "some lead."
COMPANY STANDS BEHIND THEIR PRODUCT
However, they ensure that this element does not come into contact with the beverage inside, nor is it accessible to consumers. This seal is covered by a robust layer of stainless steel once the manufacturing process is complete.
The assurance from Stanley PMI is that unless the product is damaged, misused, or subjected to extreme heat, the lead within the sealing material remains contained and poses no risk to users. To further assuage concerns, the company has revealed ongoing efforts to find innovative alternatives for this sealing material.
VIRAL SOCIAL MEDIA LEAD TESTING
Despite the company's statements, a viral social media post challenges their safety claims. The user, after conducting a personal test with lead swabs purchased online, reported that while similar products from Yeti and Rtic showed negative results for lead, Stanley Tumblers tested positive.
The post, accompanied by images, has raised concerns among the public, who rely on these popular tumblers for their daily hydration.
