This Sur La Table mixing spoon / baking utensil has a stainless steel handle and black silicone spoon end. All components were negative for lead, mercury and arsenic when tested with an XRF instrument. The black silicone of the spoon was positive for a very low level of cadmium (10 +/- 6 parts per million).
Cadmium at this level is considered safe by all standards and is not considered an added ingredient, it would, instead, be a trace contaminant from the manufacturing process (possibly as part of the colorant of the silicone.)
