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. 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.
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! Thank you.
