Stanley tumblers are all the rage these days, exploding on social media platforms like Instagram and TikTok. But here's the buzz: are they safe?
The big question? Do these trendy steel drink holders, available in eye-catching colors like pink and blue, contain lead? Stanley's now shedding some light on this.
Here's the scoop from Stanley PMI's website: yes, there's "some lead" in the sealing material. But, no worries - it doesn't touch the drink or the drinker.
Stanley's key feature? Vacuum insulation tech. Keeps your drink just right. But, there's a twist: a lead-including pellet seals the deal at the bottom. "Once sealed, this area is covered with a durable stainless steel layer, making it inaccessible to consumers," says Stanley.
To get to the lead, you'd have to really mess up your tumbler – think extreme heat or major damage.
Progress alert! Stanley's working on lead-free sealing solutions, a spokesperson tells Today.com.
And to quash any doubts, Stanley tells WCNC: No lead on the surface, no risk to you or your beverage.
