When tested with an XRF instrument this clipping from a cushion from a 2017 Peg Perego High Chair had the following readings. [Each test was done for at least 60 seconds.]
Test 1: testing with smooth side up
(if a metal is not listed it was not detected by the XRF instrument.)
- Antimony (Sb): 85 +/- 32 ppm
- Bromine (Br): 21 +/- 3 ppm
- Tin (Sn): 76 +/- 22 ppm
- Iron (Fe): 218 +/- 31 ppm
Test 2: testing with textured side up
- Antimony (Sb): 82 +/- 32 ppm
- Bromine (Br): 28 +/- 3 ppm
- Tin (Sn): 72 +/- 22 ppm
- Iron (Fe): 138 +/- 29 ppm
- Titanium (Ti): 845 +/- 318 ppm
Mama sent me just piece of the chair. I have not tested the whole high chair, just this sample from the cushion.
I would assume that the entire chair is Lead-free (given the manufacturer is a well respected company and this is an item expressly made for use by children), however with all the baby bottles we have found recently that have tested positive for Lead it not unreasonable to question things like this!
As always, please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you for reading and for sharing my posts!
