Newer Blue Glass Ball Jar: 61 ppm lead (+/- 16 ppm). Considered safe by all standards.
Tamara’s Grade: “C”
C = I would not want to use it in my home, I would not want to eat food that you canned in it in your home. If you offered me something to drink in this (like tea or water) when I am visiting you, I would be fine with that. It is likely not leaching, but since lead-free jars can be found (especially for longer term storage like canning) I prefer to have the lead-free options in my home.

Can you please test the colored Adeline line by the Pioneer Woman?
Hi – The way things work here on my blog is that my readers send me stuff to test and help cover the cost of the testing… Everything here on my blog is directed by my readers. Here’s more information about that: https://tamararubin.com/2019/08/tamara-can-i-send-you-one-of-my-dishes-to-test-for-lead/
Thank you for commenting!
Hello. I am using the blue Ball mason jars for our dish and hand soaps in our kitchen – would that be dangerous? We have an almost 11-year old so I am concerned now that I’m finding they have lead – I thought I could trust Ball brand 🙁
Hello, I have some Ball wide mouth 24 oz teal blue/turquoise jars – they’re not the same shade shown in your photo. I bought these in the last 5 years, made in the USA. Is it also the case these contain lead – that all colored jars have lead ?
Thanks in advance,
