In various countries it is forbitten to sell products to be used with food, that is made from recycled plastic. It has something to do with the deteriation of the plastic, and that the consumer cant know where you got your plastic from, and that it might have conterminates from the place it was used last. I would have it as a rule of thump to keep recycled plastic and food separated, even for yourself. The recycled plastic is not dangerus, but not 100% healthy to eat from either.

Good luck – Anris

as @anris said, it is illegal to use recycled plastic for things that come into contact with food, but if you know where the plastic comes from, and the things that came into contact with it in its previous life are harmless (think shampoo bottles, packaging or similar) you should be in the clear, the plastic does degrade slightly, but it isn’t a huge factor if you have your process on how to mold the plastic down, i hope it helps 🙂
