CERAMIC SOURCE: AMERICAN MADE MUGS WITH POISONOUS TOXINS

You would think that a mug that has poisonous toxins in the glaze and paint would come from China, right?  Well guess again.  After going through a batch of company gifts, my wife came across a custom mug created by Ceramic Source.  On the bottom of the mug was the ominous Prop 65 sticker:

"WARNING: The materials used as colored decorations on the exterior of this product contain lead and/or cadmium, chemicals known to the state of California to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm."

We just had a healthy baby boy and we were lucky my wife only used the mug as a pen case.  It now will go into the garbage.

Don't buy drinking ware that contains toxins.  It's unheard of in America and disturbing Ceramic Source can get away with manufacturing these mugs.
