The solder joint in the tubing. Personally, I don't see a risk but the environmentalists see a risk in any lead at all. The plumbing in my house has ALL lead soldered joints. Now, plumbers are not allowed to use lead type solder. If the water just passes over the lead, there is absolutely minimal chance of problems. Keeping wine in a lead crystal decantor will also leech lead into the drink but, you don't hear all the hype about that. It's all about making the earth green. Toy wagons are being recalled because of lead in the paint. I don't know of ANY kids who ever ATE their wagon.

    No, I don't know of any kids that have eaten their wagon either. However, I can guarantee that there are a lot of kids who have eaten paint chips ffrom anything and everything in their environment! I did when I was a kid (many, many years ago)! In today's world why would any manufacturer still use lead solder in any appliance used for food products? No, one joint in one appliance probably does not create a significant hazard. However, how many other sources are contributing lead into our systems that we aren't aware of? How often do we see warnings on other pieces of Chinese garbage? Lead poisening is a cumulative condition, not the result of one single dose!

I put milk in my Keurig and now it won't work...i think the milk burned mean you poured actual milk into the water reservoir on a Keurig coffeemaker..?

That's not good.
What prompted you to do that?

My advise would be to boil water in a kettle, adding about a half-cup of regular vinegar. Pour this into the coffeemaker and let it run through a cycle with just the hot water/vinegar solution. Next, run plain hot water through it.

Hopefully, this will help with flushing out any/all milk that's clogging the coffeemaker. You may have to do this several times to remove the milk residue..milk will cling. (and will start to smell foul..which may or may/not attract insects) so don't ever do that again!

Lead in the coffee maker

It does contain a small amount of lead inside a copper coil located in the electronics of the machine. This part does not come in contact with the water, heater or any other part that would cause lead contamination of your coffee.

This page has a great write up explaining it:
