A US expert has issued a warning to Pyrex measuring jug users after testing the common household item for dangerous chemicals.
Sharing the results on her hugely popular website Lead Safe Mama, Tamara revealed how the Pyrex vessel she tested recorded more than eight times the safe level recommended by some authorities.
And while the child health advocate isn’t sure of the model number or year of manufacture of the Pyrex measuring jug, she’s warned that ‘cadmium does not belong in our cookware.’
She writes: "When tested with an XRF instrument this glass Pyrex measuring cup had the following readings:
- Lead (Pb): Non-Detect/ND [Negative]
- Cadmium (Cd): 326 ppm [in the red writing on the outside of the glass.]
"Cadmium is a known possible carcinogen and does not belong in our cookware."
