I just reviewed the information at the Breeder's Choice Website.
From both the customer reviews and the manufacturer's information, the product appears to be "budgie-safe".

Our product contains >99% recycled paper (post-consumer). No new material is used in our product. The recycling of paper saves valuable landfill space, saves energy, reduces pollution and uses less resources than manufacturing from virgin material.

Our patented process is Process Chlorine Free (PCF). This means that it does not use any bleach whatsoever (chlorine, oxygen-based or elemental). Bleaches contain chemicals which may increase respiratory risk and produce toxic by-products. These can adversely affect humans, animals and the environment.

Our product relies on the natural absorption qualities of paper, and does not utilise additives or chemicals. Coating, anti-clumping and scent additives (which only mask odours) may pose health threats to humans and animals alike because they contain, create or utilise chemicals, allergens, fumes and Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) emissions.

After use, our product can be used as surface mulch in gardens or will decompose beneficially in a managed landfill facility. Paper biodegrades over time with the assistance of oxygen and water. Mulching of paper (especially when mixed with other organic material) can help suppress weed growth, retain water, help protect plants from frost and reduce soil erosion.
