Health Canada has amended its Hazardous Products Regulations to reduce the maximum allowable lead levels leached from solder joints inside kettles from 0.05 parts per million to 0.01 parts per million. The amendments came after testing determined that the use of lead solder in some kettles produced lead levels in boiled water exceeding the 0.05 ppm standard for drinking water. Affected products include stove-top and electric kettles, coffee percolators, samovars, and espresso machines. See Canada Gazette, March 17, 2010.
