Fiestaware yellow plate – newish (as of 2014).
When tested with an XRF instrument the dish pictured here had the following readings:
- Lead (Pb): Non-Detect / Negative
- Arsenic (As): Non-Detect / Negative
- Mercury (Hg): Non-Detect / Negative
- Cadmium (Cd): Non-Detect / Negative
Some colors of the new Fiestaware have tested positive for trace-Cadmium or trace-Lead. To see more Fiestaware pieces I have tested, Click HERE.

I would give new Fiestaware a “B+” rating: safe to eat off of, generally a good choice, likely leach tested, company is doing a good job. Marked down because (in spite of Lead-free labeling) trace toxicants have been found in some of their colors (even though those trace toxicants are not necessarily a hazard at all.) I would not choose to have these in my home, but I would be fine eating off of them if I came to visit and you served me a meal using these dishes.

I was under the impression when I purchased my tangerine fiesta sets that they were lead and cadmium free. This is very alarming to me that your test was positive for cadmium. I have been searching for a great loaf bread pan and came across fiesta ivory color and ordered a couple recently. Have you tested the ivory and white in fiesta too? Are those cadmium, lead, and arsenic free?
I purchased these exact plates with the link you provided, but when they arrived, they have the black “lead free” stamp on the bottom…. are the ones I received in fact lead free? I just feel so overwhelmed with everything! Thanks.
