New Wild Dining “JustMustard” Brand Gorilla Plate: 22,600 +/- 600 ppm Lead when tested with an XRF instrument.

New Wild Dining "JustMustard" Brand Gorilla Plate: 22,600 +/- 600 ppm Lead when tested with an XRF instrument.Here’s a link to this product on Amazon.*

When tested with an XRF instrument this Gorilla “Wild Dining” plate by JustMustard.com had the following readings:

  • Lead (Pb): 22,600 +/- 600 ppm
  • Chromium (Cr): 4,344 +/- 561 ppm

The amount of Lead that is considered toxic in a newly manufactured item intended for use by children (as detectable with an XRF instrument) is anything 90 ppm Lead or higher in the paint, glaze or coating.

My concern with these plates is that (based on what the owner told me) they are being marketed to children (at least by some of the vendors) with the intention being that the child can play with their food and add hair and other design elements to the animals using their food.

I don’t personally know if they are expressly being marketed for use by children by the manufacturer (one Amazon listing has a warning: “not a toy”). If they are, this is possibly a CPSC violation. New children’s dishes should have Lead levels below 90 ppm.
