When these new purple ball jars were tested with an XRF instrument they tested positive for a very low level of lead (just a trace and within the realm of what might be considered safe for a modern item intended for children). That said, I LOVE purple, but I prefer not to have anything leaded in my home, and especially not in my kitchen, so I would not personally choose these.
Here’s the exact XRF reading for the jar pictured below:
- Lead (Pb): 63 +/- 14 ppm
- Non-Detect (ND) for: Mercury (Hg), Cadmium (Cd) & Arsenic (As).
