#Leaded: Starbucks Coffee Company “You Are Here” Collection, 14 oz California Mug

c. 2017 Starbucks Coffee Brand Ceramic “You Are Here” Collection “California” Mug :
Positive for lead (Pb) with levels as high as 6,397 ppm lead (+/- 184 ppm) when tested with an XRF instrument. This mug was negative for cadmium (Cd), arsenic (As) and mercury (Hg).

The amount of lead that is considered toxic in the substrate of an item manufactured today as intended for use by children is anything 100 ppm lead or higher (90 ppm or higher in the glaze.) Dishes and glassware are not generally regulated for lead levels as detectable with an XRF because they are not considered to be “items intended for use by children.”

      I can’t generalize because I haven’t tested enough – but it seems like they do.
