Answer: 
"It is important to note that not all HDPE containers are considered food-grade. If they are not labelled specifically as "food safe," the container should be lined with a food-grade plastic bag before storing food in it."

Answer: 
Reply from the Manufacturer - these are “NEW” food grade drums. The molded in label on the top of the drum specifically says to DO NOT REUSE FOR FOOD OR DRINK. This warning does not apply as these are sold new (not re-used). The label that is removed is a UN certification that also does not apply. As with any food grade item or utensil, wash and rinse before use is recommended.

Answer: 
YES... The drums are made of HDPE, food grade plastic. The drums are new, so they can't be contaminated by non food products. So Yes, you can use them for food storage because that is what they were made for.

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 55 Gallon Blue Drum Great drum for holding whatever. I was impressed with quality. We used the barrel to hold product and cut the top off. This drum is well built and I was surprised at the thickness of the entire unit. Great product for storing anything you need to store short of flammables. I would recommend this product ! October 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 55 Gal Drum Nice barrel. Be sure to have a bung wrench or other tool to open the bung. October 18, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Purchased for use as live fish tank on boat dock Good durable barrel, easy to cut open, using as a fish holding tank on boat dock July 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by clean both insid and out sent in unopen box the drums were complexly clean and look good in the back yard the thread areas were to size no surprises. July 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great rain barrel The rain barrel kit was easy to put together and the instructions were very clear. January 12, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good purchase, but.... The blue rain barrel is sturdy and well built, but the lid is sealed on which makes getting the connections and attachments a challenge. Otherwise, we are happy to have a means for collecting rain and reusing it. October 17, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Do not buy if you plan to use for water Where ever they got these 2nd hand barrels. The mfg and prior company was sanded off. and it states right on it not to use for water. pretty much useless at this point. October 13, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not food or drinking water grade I bought these with the intent of using for drinkable water storage. However upon receiving it they labeled not for food or drinking. If that is the case, then their online description should state so. WILL return it. August 1, 2015
