#LowLead: Rae Dunn Artisan Collection by Magenta – “Sugar” Container, 2018

2018 Rae Dunn “Sugar” container:
Tested with an XRF instrument.
Outside: 156 +/- 26 ppm lead (Pb)
Inside: 181 +/- 47 ppm lead (Pb)
Non-detect for cadmium (Cd), arsenic (As) and mercury (Hg).
This is a very low level of lead for a modern ceramic item. That said, I choose lead-free items for my home, however I don’t personally currently have any type of decorative sugar container in my kitchen. Instead we keep all of our baking goods (sugar, flour, etc.) in plain modern clear glass vacuum sealed Ball Jars.
For context: the amount of lead considered unsafe in an item Intended for children (as detectable with an XRF) is 90 ppm lead and higher in the coating (or 100 ppm or higher in the substrate.) There is currently no regulatory standard for XRF detectable lead in modern dishware. Since it is possible to make lead-free kitchenware in 2018 (and many many companies do!), companies should work towards lead-free as a goal.
