Topic tags/keywords: titebond cutting board glue food

Hi cutting board club members!!!
I have a question for Titebond II and III, which are known for waterproof and food safety.
When I read their label on the bottle, it says “Safe on non-direct food contact”.
I don’t get concrete idea what is non-direct contact, and are the glues lines on the cutting
board considered non-direct because its surface area is minial compare to other area?
Titebond claims their glues are approved by FDA for food use, but does not confirm what
is the non-direct contact.

I sent email and called Titebond question this matter, but they don’t reply to me.
Any one has idea if Titebond is safe enough for cutting board?

Many folks around me who received my cutting boards ask this quesiton too.

sounds like it comes down to the definition of “indirect”. As far as I can tell, the distinction is whether the material comes in direct contact with food e.g. containers and packaging materials. Adhesives automatically get classified in the “indirect” category.

So if TB says they are approved (and their website specifically mentions cutting boards), I wouldn’t worry about it.

I would imagine direct would be putting it on a hotdog like mustard.

Have your say...
