Well, epoxy generally isn't good to ingest.  :)  When it's still soft
you should wear gloves and avoid breathing it, but once it hardens 
(usually about 24 hours) the leaching rate would probably be very slow.
But no, it's not non-toxic.

However, the Water Weld stuff (that sets in 20 minutes) *is* non-toxic
and is easier to work with -- it's just a putty that you roll in your fingers,
then push into the crack.


It's more expensive, though.
