I was really surprised that this was 100% Lead-free, but not surprised that it tested positive for a high level of Cadmium.

People often express concern for products from the Dollar (type) stores [Dollar Tree, Dollar Store, Dollar General, 99cent Store] and usually I explain to them that BECAUSE they were cited for significant Lead-violations years ago, in my experience their stuff has become much safer (at least from a Lead perspective.)

Time will tell (and by that I mean like the next week or so because earlier this week I spent $46 at the Dollar store on potentially “suspect” items to test for you all & there are a few more examples in there that I just cannot imagine will be both Lead-free and Cadmium-free.)

Thank you for reading and for sharing my posts!

If you want to donate to help me do this kind of testing (where I buy stuff new at a store to test),  to “Chip-In” [via PayPal or with a credit card] Click HERE or you can contribute on GoFundME [LINK.] As an example, this Dollar Tree store trip cost me about $60 including the stuff and the transportation – not including the cost of testing and childcare.
