Honestly I'm not sure. It never touches the food and is completely dry.

EDITED TO ADD: I did a search on "RTV food safe" and found a post on another BBQ site asking is Permatex RTV is food safe. The OP sent a message to the Mfr and received this reply from Permatex:

Permatex has a High Temp. RED RTV Silicone Gasket Maker and is safe to
use around food products .It is certified
NSF/ANSI STANDARD 51 Food Equipment Materials ...( indirectly around
food )Temp. max. is 600 F continuous and 650 F intermittently ... The
Ultra Copper is not NSF

Hope this helps.
