It just takes a microscopic amount of Lead to poison a child! Federal regulatory agencies (EPA, CDC, FDA) agree that there is no safe amount of Lead exposure for a child. The Lead content of the paint in most of these products is VERY HIGH. The amount of Lead – outside of this loophole – that is supposed to be considered illegal and unsafe for use in children’s products is anything 90 ppm Lead or higher in the paint or coating. The paint I tested on the outside surface of this baby bottle is almost 20,000 ppm.
