In 2007 I had to dump off some of my (then 1 year old) son’s Thomas the Tank Engine toys back at Toys R Us. They were suspected to contain lead paint. That wasn’t too long ago.

Supposedly the issue with finishes isn’t necessarily the solids, but whatever solvents they contain. After a length of time, the solvents flash off and you have your “food safe” finish. I’m with you purrmaster. Finish, no matter what it is will get ruined in a hurry on a cutting board. Mineral oil is easy, and easy to reapply.
