Default Food safety of polyester/nylon mesh? (Bittering hops bag, BIAB, and dry hopping)

Is there any kind of literature that points to the safety of nylon or polyester used in:

  • Bittering/Finishing hops during the boil
  • Mashing (BIAB use)
  • Dry-hopping (extended temperature control use)

I'm having a hard time finding public domain literature on the food safety use of these materials at the desired temperatures. Anyone happen to have the information handy?

I posted a similar question last year, never got a great answer ( http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f11/biab...fe-bag-350276/ )
