#LeadFree: 6 oz clear glass Ball brand mason jar

Small 6oz Ball brand clear glass canning jar, lid and band.  Newly purchased in 2017. Tested with an XRF instrument.  “Non-Detect” (negative) for lead (Pb), mercury (Hg), arsenic (As) and cadmium (Cd.) We use Ball brand canning jars (of all sizes) every day in our home. While the lids are free of the toxicants listed above they are still coated in plastic and have other issues – fortunately there are quite a few lid alternatives out there (and it is my understanding that the new Ball brand canning jar lids are now BPA-free.)

    Thank you Tamara for the great work that you do! I’m considering using glass jars for storing breast milk and was wondering which of these you think would be better.
    – the Ball 4-Ounce Quilted Crystal Jelly Jars with Lids and Bands (the similar product which you linked to http://amzn.to/2AspSMS)
    – the Ball Brand Glass Storage Jars with Plastic Caps (I think this is the same product that you wrote about here, https://tamararubin.com/2017/10/ball_baby)
