Pampered Chef hand juicer / citrus juicer (c. 2007) with chipping peeling paint:
positive for lead at 552 ppm when tested with an XRF instrument.
This piece was negative for Arsenic.
Most juicers like this that I have tested have been positive for high levels of Lead. Click HERE to see a few more examples.
For context: 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 in the paint or coating and anything 100 ppm Lead (or higher) in the substrate.
Dishware and cookware (including things like juicers) are not generally regulated for total Lead content as detectable with an XRF instrument.
