Logo Mug: Hebrews 3:4 “…He that built all things is God.”
Green Logo on white mug with gold trim (tested in 2014).
The green logo on this is positive for lead at 54,800 ppm.
The gold trim and white mug are both “ND” (non-detect) for lead.
Pretty much all mugs with logos like this are high lead. An “extra test” you can do at home without spending any money: run your fingers over the logo on the mug. Can you feel it? Is it slightly raised and perhaps a little rough? That means it is likely leaded (based on the thousands of mugs I have tested.)
With decorated mugs like this the age does not matter at all, even brand new decorated mugs can be high lead.
[If you cannot feel the design with your finger on a new mug then it is less likely to be leaded. A good example of this is some of the NEW photo mugs, although not all of the photo mugs are lead-free. Click here to see some of the photo mugs.]
The amount of lead that is considered toxic in a modern/newly manufactured item intended for children is anything 90 ppm lead or higher. Mugs are not considered items intended for use by children and, as such, are not regulated for total lead content as detectable when tested with an XRF instrument.
