Whent tested with an XRF instrument this newer Fiestaware purple bowl had the following readings:
- Lead (Pb): Non-Detect / Negative
- Arsenic (As): Non-Detect / Negative
- Mercury (Hg): Non-Detect / Negative
- Cadmium (Cd): 67 ppm
The level of Cadmium found in this bowl is considered a “trace” level (likely a contaminant of the colorant for the glaze0) and is seen as safe by most standards.
As always, please let me know if you have any questions.
Thank you for reading and for sharing my posts.
