  QUESTION: Are Britdis teapots made after 1999 lead-free? - 06 Feb 2007 NSW, Australia

The recall of Britdis teapots was it all, every one? or just all those  manufactured prior to 1999? We have 3 - I am horrified at the thought of what we may be ingesting. I was mistaken in thinking they were good quality! Can anyone please clarify for me? thankyou Bev‍

ANSWER: 06 Feb 2007

Dear Bev,

I sent your question to ACCC and have just received the following response: Sent: Tuesday, February 06, 2007 10:38 AM

Hi Elizabeth,

The Britdis teapot recall was in 1999 and only applied to teapots manufactured prior to 1999.  Products manufactured after 1999 should be lead free.

I hope this helps. If in doubt as to the date of manufacture of the teapot, the best idea would be for anyone who has drunk tea from one to have a blood lead test to be sure. Just ask the doctor for the test.

Kind regards

Yours Sincerely

Elizabeth O'Brien
