#Leaded: Polish Enameled Mug; Yellow (Cadmium too!)

Yellow Enamelware Mug, “Made In Poland” – tested positive for lead at 88 ppm and for cadmium at 21,600 ppm. Tested with an XRF instrument (in 2017).

While this is considered “Lead-Safe” , the amount of cadmium present is at a level that is considered toxic in an item intended for children. Read more about #CadmiumConcerns here.


The amount of lead that is considered toxic in a modern/newly manufactured item intended for children is anything 90 ppm lead or higher. Mugs are not considered items intended for use by children and, as such, are not regulated for total lead content as detectable when tested with an XRF instrument.
