Stanley cup owners can rejoice!


According to Lumafield, a startup that makes X-ray CT scanners for engineers, Stanley cup owners can rejoice, because the odds of getting lead poisoning from the viral tumblers are vanishingly small.

Images from a recent industrial CT scan performed by Lumafield supports what Stanley has been saying from the beginning: The cups contain lead, but users are safe from lead poisoning.


The images show a lead solder pellet (in red above) at the bottom of the tumbler, but because of a stainless-steel protective cover, users shouldn’t come into contact with it.

The only risk of contact, says Stanley, is when the cover is damaged or altered in such a way that the lead pellet becomes exposed. If damage occurs, consumers should stop using the product and return it to the company under their lifetime warranty.
