I wouldn’t risk it for a cutting board.

If you don’t want to waste the wood, make furniture, boxes, or something that doesn’t have to come in contact with food.

Whenever working with pallets, remember to check the branding that indicates how it was treated.

There are lots of sources for junk wood for free or cheap besides pallets (including 2×4s) that you can be more confident about.

There is no telling it’s origin, treatment or potential contamination. Don’t risk it.
