Analysis came back high lead values

2004 Winnebago Vectra, Allison 3000

Test came back that lead was at 55ppm.
They said fluid is not serviceable and should be changed.
Had transmission serviced when I bought it about 2 years and @12000 miles ago.
Paperwork says they used 27101 CTCS Transynd fluid.
How bad is this?
My stomach is now very unsettled since reading this report.
I am looking for service centers near me.
Currently near Fredricksburg, VA parked in my daughter's drive way. We are full time in our coach.

If it were mine I would get a second test run by a different lab before I hit the panic button!

Blackstone and JG Labs are both reputable companies for fluid analysis.

I'm gonna go with Blackstone recommendation.....change fluid/filters, drive for while and watch it, then send in another sample. I have had no symptoms (that I'm aware of) or codes from shift pad. I think it has happened because of the Freightliner shop I had it serviced last at. They underfilled by 4 quarts. I trusted them and did not check until I went to Gaffney. They discovered this and added fluid. Also later discovered they charged me for 48 quarts of oil and my engine only takes 21. They did finally send me a check several months later when I provided them proof of their"error" on the oil. I now do all this myself. Just praying wear is not to bad on transmission.
