I hope this topic is OK to post here...I often read on this thread that people are using Klean Kanteen bottles. Because I so blindly trust the taste of you guys here I ordered a bottle for each of the family. I quite like the look and simplicity and the versatility of the caps etc..and of course the use of non toxic materials.
Which is the reason I post this here. AFTER I placed my order I did some research and found out that all stainless steel bottles in the world are made in China (bad...I dont trust anything out of China) and that even high grade steel from China is not to be trusted and that they are notorious for using asbestos, radioactive particles, lead and God knows what other toxins in their steel bottles.
Klean Kanteen assures buyers that they bottles are safe but after reading this

I am not so sure about my choice anymore.
I also use Lifefactory Glass bottles but found them often too heavy for the kids and they do not slide easily in and out of backpacks due to the silicone sleeve. I still use it a lot in the car and around the house but thought a stainless steel bottle would be lighter and easier especially for the kids.
Am I suffering from paranoia? What do you guys think about this?
At the end of the day we use steel for cooking and so many other things too....and I love the look of the Klean Kanteen.....?
