Chateau Buffet – USA made – 140,000 ppm lead!
The amount of lead in dishes is not specifically regulated (as a portion of content.) The thing that is regulated (in some areas) with newer items is the amount that leaches into food. If you have older dishes with high levels of lead, all bets are off. If you have newer dishes that are mass-manufactured and have very low levels of lead – the likelihood is that they were leach tested and are safe. You really cannot know though unless you ask the manufacturer – which is why I advocate for lead-free dishes and cookware.
The amount of lead that is considered toxic in an item intended for children (not dishes specifically) is 90 ppm lead.
Ninety vs. One Hundred and Forty Thousand… you decide!
Here’s are links to some new (lead-free) bowls on Amazon.*
These are bowls I have in my home!
Set of 3 lead-free soup/cereal bowls (28 oz): $18.74
Set of 4 lead-free bowls (12 oz): $14.99
Set of 6 lead-free bowls (18 oz): $22.99
& these are my favorite!
