just found out that bakeware contains 0.1ppm of lead. i'm pregnant. should i be worried?

Should be no lead: Look for lead-free bakeware. However, 0.1 ppm is the upper safe limit designated for any food contact surface by the state of california, so it should be safe.

No: It would be important if you were eating the bakeware, but not just using it- too little transfers.
