Thanks for being in touch Amy!
I just tested another StanPac bottle (from another [dairy] brand): https://tamararubin.com/2021/01/smiling-hill-farm-dairy-maine-glass-milk-bottle-by-stanpac-painted-with-green-black-lead-paint-33600-ppm-lead-90-is-unsafe/
The concern is for micro particulate toxicants. While the post is similar to the post I wrote for your bottle (I copied your post as a template) I highlighted in the above post the fact that the very low traces of Lead and Cadmium (found in the clear glass / unpainted components) seem to be possible worn pigment – which can be toxic even at levels not noticeable to the naked eye.
Please watch my film for a greater understanding of the issue, here’s the link on Youtube: https://youtu.be/eRKlaC2EjL0
This post might also be helpful for context: https://tamararubin.com/2019/03/the-sugar-packet-analogy-how-much-lead-dust-does-it-take-to-poison-a-child/
Keep me posted and please connect with / reach out to the other dairies on the blog (there are three with StanPac bottles up now and I am going to add a fourth tonight) – perhaps together you can change the industry: https://tamararubin.com/category/stanpac-glass-bottle/
As I said in the post, there is no place for Lead on our milk bottles (or in our kitchens). And if only PART of this is bioavailable Lead, that part is too much.
