What idiot uses lead solder instead of lead-free solder for a cup?

Do not use lead in anything related to drinking.  Not in water pipes, not in cups, etc. etc.

Morons should be imprisoned for this stupidity.

But they saved three-tenths of a cent per cup. Treating the effects of what they created is another financial sector's problem.

Why do you hate capitalism?

The Shiny Stainless Steel Sippy Cup is the name of my Harry Harrison 90s Cartoon Kids Show on Nickelodeon.

The risk of lead exposure is overblown.  After all, we boomers grew up in the 50's and 60's surrounded by lead paint in our home and breathing the air saturated with lead from gasoline, and we're all fine.

Senate Runoff: Sen. Raphael Warnock (D) has a narrow 51% - 47% lead over Herschel Walker (R) in the runoff election for U.S. Senate. He leads voters 18-49 by a 24-point margin, while Walker keeps it close due to his 9-point lead with voters 50+, who make up 62% of likely runoff voters.

Never mind.

You should have gotten your baby a Yeti sippy cup.  They weigh two pounds apiece, but now my daughter is in the Junior Weightlifting Championships.

Likely not even whoever put it together either, but someone at the corp. supply chain level that substituted lead solder to make a buck

Geez - back off - the 6 year-olds in China were just doing what they were told.

A Chinese idiot? Anything for a bit more profit.

Probably recycled solder from scrapped PCBs :-)

Not an entirely bad idea.  When you are at a table give your kid a coffee cup rather than a sippy cup.  The added heft forces them to be a bit more focused when they pick it up, it has a handle, they are durable, and chances are you have a few extras from trade shows or whatever that you don't really care about anyway.
