The ionizing radiation leaves no trace of radioactivity and the food itself is probably completely safe. My issue is that with the sterilization by the ionizing radiation, you are going to lose the benefit of the bacterial population inherent within any food item. I believe all animals rely on food material to assist in the maintenance of the population and species composition of their intestinal bacteria fauna.
