unless you print it with PLA,
PLA is used in salad/fruit clamshells (biodegradeable deli containers), food packaging, disposable cups, disposable tableware, portion cups, and obviously more. so fairly sure its safe enough to use.

a few example references:

Hey guys, I am glad this was of some use. I just made this cup as an exercise to recall how to use CAD software after some 10 years. I don't have a 3D printer myself, so I really had no idea how the handle would feel when I designed it. Thanks also for posting the pictures, it's really cool to see something you designed becoming a real object in another continent!
What in the ...  LOL, but are you not afraid to drink a hot liquid in plastic that will leech chemicals into your body?

Pretty much straight forward.

I guess this needs to be printed at 100% infill in order to be watertight? I printed a big mug at 150% scale, took 4 hours but it's not watertight.
Best coffee cup on Thiniverse! I printed mine 195% so it was properly sized for use here in Seattle. :-)
