Non-toxic woods for salad bowls.

Can someone point me to a list of acceptable woods for salad bowls?

Thanks!

Cherry and Maple are good choices. Stay away from nut woods like walnut. Some people may be sensitive due to nut allergies.

Thanks. I came across that list, but it seems to deal mostly with inhalation and skin irritation. I'm concerned with contact with food.
