Spring 2019 Dollar Tree Royal Norfolk Paisley Dinner Plates: 60 ppm Lead + 38 ppm Cadmium (safe by all standards!)

Spring 2019 Dollar Tree Store Royal Norfolk Paisley Print Dinner Plates: 60 ppm Lead + 38 ppm Cadmium (safe by all standards!)

Note: While the XRF readings below indicate that these plates are “safe by all standards”, please do not take this as a recommendation by me to purchase these plates. I only have Lead-free and Cadmium-free dishes in my home and I don’t think there is a place for any level of toxicants in our kitchenware, cookware or tableware. These plates are, however, a better choice than many other options out there.

When tested with an XRF instrument this Dollar Tree store Royal Norfolk dinner plate had the following readings. 

Test one – 30 seconds (food surface):

  • Lead (Pb): 60 +/- 14 ppm
  • Cadmium (Cd): 36 +/- 8 ppm
  • Chromium (Cr): 2,790 +/- 440 ppm
  • Zinc (Zn): 20,500 +/- 500 ppm
  • Copper (Cu): 99 +/- 36 ppm
  • Iron (Fe): 1,128 +/- 154 ppm
  • Cobalt (Co): 2,165 +/- 156 ppm

Metals not listed were not detected by the XRF instrument.

Test two – 30 seconds (food surface):

  • Lead (Pb): 48 +/- 13 ppm
  • Cadmium (Cd): 38 +/- 8 ppm
  • Chromium (Cr): 1,041 +/- 351 ppm

  • Zinc (Zn): 23,000 +/- 600 ppm

    Hi! I am so glad I found your page while looking for this exact information. I was looking into buying some of these dishes and was concerned. So you have this brand of dishes and they are lead free and safe? I am excited to hear this!
