If you have not read this post yet, please do READ the full post (linked above and below) and let me know if you have any questions (after you have read the entire post. ;-))
If this information were – in any way – “false” or “fake news” (as a few individuals have periodically stubbornly alleged), Corelle’s legal team would have demanded I retract it. This post has been up for two years now (since December of 2019) with no additional response from Corelle. It is not “false”, nor is it misleading; it is also not any sort of “fear-mongering”… It is science. It is factual advice, aimed at helping you protect your family from being unnecessarily exposed to Lead in your home – and especially in your kitchen / on your dining table.
Would you willingly choose to eat off of Lead-painted plates if you knew the painted decorations contained high amounts of Lead? Incredibly, today this is still the case with a lot of dishes, mugs, and other items — even from the most popular & “respected” brands! Considering that Lead is one of the most potent neurotoxiocants known to man, if you could easily identify which brands and items were scientifically tested and confirmed to contain high levels of Lead [and/or Mercury, Cadmium, Arsenic, or other neurotoxic heavy metals] I would wager that you would choose to buy safer alternatives! #KnowBetterDoBetter
You can buy replacement LEAD-FREE undecorated clear glass plates for $1 each at The Dollar Store (and elsewhere) — so there’s no reason not to buy replacement dishes if you have been using these older Leaded Corelle pieces. There are also lots of other examples of LEAD FREE (or at the very least, LEAD-SAFE) dishes on this website – so this is not in any way a “doom and gloom” / “everything I love has Lead” situation — it is rather an opportunity to learn, how to make a better-informed choice for your family. Thank you for reading.
