Newer (c. 2014) Yellow Fiestaware Plate: Lead-free & Cadmium-free!

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.

Here’s a link to this exact plate on Amazon*:

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.
