My first thought was also TransTint, so I looked up the MSDS which describes it as toxic. Even if it's not toxic once it's dried, the perception by the customer might be otherwise.
My second thought was that if it's going to be used as a food prep area, it's likely that over time the dye will wear off in places and look bad. Even TransTint only penetrates a short distance in rock maple.
