This Pfaltzgraff, Made in China dish (c. 2002), “The Secrets of Pistoulet” pattern dish (by Jana Kolpen) tested positive for lead at 336 parts per million (ppm) when tested with an XRF instrument.
The amount of lead that is considered toxic in the paint or coating of a modern item manufactured and intended for use by children is anything 90 ppm lead or higher. Dishware is not regulated for total lead content as detectable with an XRF instrument.

Thank you for reading and for sharing my posts.
I just recently purchased the pistoulet blue pattern and in a home lead test it came up negative. Could the color of the paint be the issue? I bought my set brand new and I live in California. Also, with the same test kit, I tested my vintage Franciscan plates and they were VERY positive for lead.
LeadCheck swabs will not work on most dishes even if they are high lead. The swab tests were not designed for that. Here’s a post with more details and information: https://tamararubin.com/2017/02/leadcheck-dishware/
My Secrest of Pistoult dishes were made in Mexico fromm 2002. Does that make a difference?
