The boiler is brass, and brass is an alloy that contains lead. Grades of brass used in boilers like this are designed not to corrode, and supposedly do not release lead into the water. You probably already have brass fittings on the water pipes in your house anyhow..

Warning of lead in keurig coffeemaker

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.
