Pyrex Glass 100th Anniversary Measuring Cup (2013): Positive for 54 ppm Cadmium in the Dark Blue Exterior Markings.

2013 “100th Anniversary” Pyrex glass measuring cup with dark blue painted markings.

When tested with an XRF instrument this cup had the following readings:

  • Lead (Pb): ND/Non-Detect (Negative)
  • Cadmium (Cd):  54 +/- 8 ppm

Cadmium is a known possible carcinogen and, regardless of regulatory standards and “allowable limits”, does not belong in our cookware. To read more about the concern for Cadmium (Cd) in food preparation equipment, Click Here.
