Good question! I'm glad you're being careful with your veggies. The container itself is probably made from recycled materials which would make it unsuitable for using it for food preparation or storage but not for growing vegetables in. You can use the nursery pots or thin plastic pots for growing anything you like. The pot won't taint the things you grow.
