Oneida Petals bowl: 369 ppm lead (Pb) & 26 ppm cadmium (Cd).
Tested in 2014.
Here’s the mug from this pattern on Amazon.
I am sharing this for context (not as a recommendation.)

In 2017 the amount of lead that is considered toxic in a modern/newly manufactured item intended for children is 90 ppm lead (or higher) in the coating or 100 ppm (or higher) in the substrate. Dishware is not regulated for total lead content as tested/detectable with an XRF instrument.
Would you like to see more test results like this? Please help me rent (or eventually buy!) an XRF instrument to continue this work.

Hi Tamara, I see the blue petals Oneida stoneware tested positive for lead. Do you know what year that dish was made? My daughter has an Oneida Sunset plate, so I was concerned about it containing lead. I looked on your website but couldn’t find any others.
