Newer (2015) KitchenAid Dough Hook: 315 ppm lead
The level of lead that is considered unsafe for an item intended for children is 90 ppm lead. Items like this are not regulated for total lead content (as detectable with an XRF instrument.)
I am NOT saying that this item will poison you, but I AM asking… why is there any lead at all in our kitchen items? Especially newly or recently manufactured kitchen items? Lead is one of the most potent neurotoxins known to man, it causes permanent brain damage in young children and does not belong in our kitchens.
Check out this blog post for a lead-free alternative.

I have called kitchen Aid. The representative said they needs to see test results. She said that she will email me form, so I can attach test results. They got all of my information and then placed on hold and hang up. I never received any email or follow up call.
