Default Accessories safe?

Apologies if I'm putting this in the wrong place, but just wanted to share something I read about the safety / non- safety of metal in cages / birdie accessories.

The thing I read was in a Harrison's healthier bird food booklet I got yesterday with the sample trial packs of Harrison's food. (My budgies, as expected, are still not that interested in it, by the way!) The article says about checking if toys in the cage are safe by being free from iron, with stainless steel being the best option. Most of you probably already know this, but thought I'd post it in case there's anyone like me who didn't.

I've just purchased kabobs and a fruit / veg holder. I did the 'magnet test' and it seems the clip at the top is a bit, very slightly magnetic. However I don't know where to get one that isn't so until I can find one, I hope it's safe enough for my budgies....?.....especially if I make sure it doesn't get rusty...?...

I'll attach a couple of photos...
