I remembered that sometimes they have tags 'not for food' - how do you know if there's no tags ?

It's a clay pot though, I've seen this tag on them before. That you should not grow plants you intend to eat in them.

egyronin - I assumed the OP was referring to pots for GROWING food, not cooking or serving it. Hence the Container Gardening Forum.
