Newer Blue Glass Ball Jar: 64 ppm Lead. Non-detect for arsenic, mercury, and cadmium.
Most of the colored glass jars I have tested have been positive for Lead to some degree.
This level is considered safe by all standards.
I personally would not want to can in jars that are positive for Lead at any level, when I can choose Lead-free jars instead.

If you appreciate what I do, the simplest way you can help support my advocacy work at NO EXTRA COST to you is to click on the Amazon affiliate link ads to the right on this page (or on the bottom if you are on your phone!). If you click on any of the links before you start your Amazon shopping as you normally would, then Amazon sends me a percentage of whatever you spend (up to 12% in April!) – and you don’t even have to buy the items pictured! 😉
Also – when we reach $5,000 on my GoFundMe, Carissa and I are going to do another round of #GuerrillaXRFTesting at a store chosen by our followers (like the #GuerrillaXRFTesting we did at Target back in February)!
Happy shopping! And thank you for your support! – Tamara
