The kegs with the Nd-Fe-B markings held a a metal alloy powder used to make
magnets. Nd is Neodynium, Fe is Iron, and B is boron. None of them are
particularly toxic, in the sense of lead or arsenic. Wash then well and use
use them as you intended. If you're extremely paranoid, coat the inside with
polyurethane from the local paint store, but let that stuff cure for a good
long time so the grain doesn't pick up a strange taste.

Another topic: I'm about to start my first batch, and I'd appreciate any hints
over and above what's available in TNCJoH or on the Munton and Fison kit I'm
using. I think I've got relax and don't worry down, but I don't have the
homebrew. Guess that I'll have to settle for a Molson's.
