WAIT! DON’T PANIC!
- Almost all of the newer Ball Jars that I have tested have tested NEGATIVE for Lead and negative for Cadmium.
- These levels (of Lead and Cadmium) found here in this jar that I tested are typical for Kerr and are considered to be trace/very low/ negligible and are not likely to be leaching at all.
- These levels are considered SAFE by ALL STANDARDS.
- Newer clear (undecorated) glass is still likely the best thing to store your food in (even with trace / low-level toxicants in some options.)
- Ball is the most consistently lead-free brand (for canning jars) that I have found (with just a few exceptions.)
- Conversely, almost all Kerr jars I have tested have been positive for low-levels of lead (20 to 40 ppm range) – with very few exceptions.
- All Weck Jars I have tested have been positive for lead in the 200 ppm range (still very low, but consistently higher.)
