Baby Bullet, LLC hopes to dispel any concern that there is harmful “lead” associated with the product. Please forgive the generic nature of this post, but we hope that it will respond to all pending concerns and inquiries.
While we cannot specify every material used to construct the Baby Bullet, please be assured that no “food contact surface” of the Baby Bullet contains BPA or any regulated heavy metal, including lead. It is the food contact surfaces that are regulated by the FDA and are the avenues for possible food contamination. The aluminum alloy nut used to anchor the stainless steel blade to the blade base is not a food contact surface. It will not touch food in the ordinary use of the product. Prior to its commercial introduction, the Baby Bullet was thoroughly evaluated and certified under all applicable standards and regulations for its intended use as a food preparing device. Amongst the test protocols followed was the International Electro technical Commission (IEC) Standard 62321:2008: “Electro technical products – Determination of levels of six regulated substances (lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls, polybrominated diphenyl ethers)”. Unlike over-the-counter lead testing kits, which can detect the presence of lead if used correctly, the IEC standard provides precise, repeatable protocols to test for the presence and level of each regulated substance. Exacting procedures are detailed in the IEC standard to assure that test samples are free from external contaminants (e.g., tap water residue) to assure accurate and reliable test results. SGS labs certified the Baby Bullet under the IEC standard and found it to be fully compliant (safe) for its use in food preparation. No food contact surface in the Baby Bullet is constructed with any hazardous substance and all external components (non-food contact surfaces) are within safe regulatory limits. Though not a food contact surface, the aluminum alloy nut was also tested, and determined by SGS to be with safe regulatory limits for each regulated substance.
We hope that this generic response addresses any question about the presence of lead in the Baby Bullet.
Thank you.
