Ink Jet Photo Mug, positive for lead at 37 ppm, when tested with an XRF instrument.
Exact brand unknown: possibly Shutterfly or Vistaprint (or similar). Tested in 2017, year of manufacture unknown. Other photo mugs have tested positive for lead at hight levels, so it is not a good idea to extrapolate this test result to all mugs.
In 2018 the amount of lead that is considered toxic in a modern/newly manufactured item intended for children is 90 ppm lead (or higher) in the coating or 100 ppm (or higher) in the substrate. Dishware is not regulated for total lead content as detected by an XRF. The amount of lead in this mug is considered safe by all standards.
