Lead Free Dishes


Lead is a toxic substance that can affect people of any age.

It accumulates in your body, so even small amounts can pose a health hazard over time.

Lead, even at low levels in the bloodstream, can cause irreversible damage to a child’s developing nervous system and brain, including lowered IQ and hyperactivity.

Lead can get into food and drink prepared, stored or served in the crockery.

You cannot tell whether a dish has lead in it just by looking at it. The only way to determine if certain crockery has lead is to test it. Home test kits can tell you if the dishes have leachable lead. These tests are most useful in detecting high levels of lead.

Lead and cadmium are found in glass when it is colored or painted with decorations. You can read more about it here: Toxic Lead in Decorated Drinking Glasses.
