Allergic reaction would be my biggest concern.

You can have an allergic reaction to any wood, but generally the more exotic or color rich the wood is, the more allergenic it is. Woods from nut trees can also be an irritant to people with nut allergies. The most common woods that people seem to use for cutting boards are domestic (u.s.) non-ring-porous woods like maple and cherry and walnut. Padauk and Purpleheart show up a lot too.

I have not heard of many issues here with allergic reactions (somebody had a Padauk or Bloodwood issue). Once you finish it, maybe it will be fine. I usually err to the side of caution though.

Have your say...
