I don't think they will cause a problem.
They are small.
Due to where they are located in the cooker, they won't be getting really hot.
Even if they give off zinc vapor, you will be using the cooker outdoors.
If you want to be safe, remove the zinc coating. Try muriatic acid, or as "Johnny_Crunch" suggested, vinegar.
