Rado.... I have checked out these Kiln bricks and they appear to be very clean... no discolouration or staining. They have been stored outside for some years. I need,for the sake of my family , to be confident they will be OK for toxins. Seems to me that if a high nomber of used fire bricks used in ovens come from kilns...then these should be fine. So... in your experience how many people use old kiln bricks and of those who do, have you ever heard of people getting sick?
Lastly it seems that lead is the greatest risk. Doy ou know if a test for lead is easy. I mean we can test for lead in paint... why not on the surface of a brick?
