Default Chrome plated brass shanks from a perlick tower, ok?

I purchased a used perlick 4 tap tower from eBay. It is in great shape but the shanks are chrome plated and the plating is gone on the inside of them. I can see the brass. Is this an issue? I suspect not as this tower came from an Irish pub and I would think that brass on beer would come up as a health issue. Anyway, thought I would check with the experts on here. Thanks as always.

you may experience some off flavors but other than that its safe to use.
