I have a large set of china made in China from the 1980s. The gold rimmed decor has started to wear off. Are these dishes dangerous to my health? Should I throw them away now?

I remember seeing the warning : Do not use for food on some dishes that were made in China and sold in, I think, Kohl's. .

People may not recall what you said to them, but they will always remember how you made them feel .

I'm not sure. There have been lead scares, concerns about dishware from China for decades.

Are you hand washing? Silver or gold rims don't last forever, especially when a dishwasher and harsh detergents are used.

I understand your concern, but I wouldn't be too concerned. You drop some food on the plate, eat it, done.

If it is real gold, there is no problem with injesting it. However, the OP may want to get a home lead testing kit and test any dinnerware originating in China for lead. Personally, I wouldn't eat or drink out of anything "made in China". YMMV
