Nickel Allergy and Stainless Steel Drinkware

FaireMaiden posted:
I am getting conflicting information on whether or not Food Grade Stainless Steel drinkware/utensils are safe for an individual allergic to nickel.

It is my understanding that Stainless Steel does not leech. Does this mean it will NOT cause a reaction? Is it possible for the nickel in Food Grade Stainless Steel to cause a digestive reaction or a dermatological reaction?

Is it safe to assume that Food Grade Stainless Steel is safe for individuals with a nickel allergy?
