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?
