When tested with an XRF instrument this 2014 “zak! designs” Anna & Elsa Mug from Disney’s animated film Frozen tested positive for Lead (Pb) at 8,834 ppm.
The amount of lead that is considered toxic (and illegal) in a modern item made and intended to be used by children is anything 90 ppm lead or higher in the glaze or coating (or 100 ppm or higher in the substrate.)
Given this mug has an “8+” note on the bottom (confirming it is intended to be used by children 8 and older) it is possibly a violation of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act regulations for items intended for children given the lead level (and the fact that children are considered children by the CPSC law into the teen years.)
Modern (recently made) Disney-themed mugs that are actually produced directly by Disney (for sale in the Disney parks) are generally a safe bet (click here for an example.) Any vintage Disney item or Disney-themed item recently made, but manufactured by another vendor is generally NOT a safe-bet!
As always, please let me know if you have any questions!
IF you appreciate the independent consumer goods testing that I do, please consider making a contribution in support of my work. I couldn’t do what I do without the help and support of my friends, fans and followers!
