The plastic is not - however, whatever was previously stored in the containers may be.
The buckets may be "clean," but what did you use to clean them?

As do I. It wouldn't be the plastic that would cause the problems.

I also use plastic builders buckets, NEW. Rinsed them with hot water and have had no problems so far.

i use new buckets as well. so long as you rinse them out to get any dust the may have collected from the store you should be fine.
