The amount of lead that is considered toxic in an item manufactured and intended to be used by children is anything 90 ppm Lead (or higher) in the glaze, paint or coating. While these items are not marketed for use by children, with their bright colors and diminutive size one could easily see that a parent might give them to their child to play with.

Given these are newly manufactured and likely leach tested, I do not have an immediate lead-poisoning concern with a dish like this, but I do have concerns for the impact of these levels of toxicants with potential long term use and heavy wear. I also have concerns that these toxicants (Lead and Cadmium) are being used as glaze ingredients at all. Click HERE to read more about these concerns.

Thank you so much for reading and for sharing my posts.

Please let me know if you have ANY questions.
