#Leaded: Vintage Stand Hand Juicer

Vintage countertop stand hand juicer. No mark or maker noted. The corroding deteriorating gray metal part that touches the orange while it is being juiced was positive for lead at 2,254 ppm.  The white enamel part was positive for lead at 168 ppm.

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 (and things like juicers) is not generally regulated for total lead content as detectable with an XRF instrument.
