Mercian tiles for oven, is it safe to use


I saw some sealed Mercian tile made with red clay in home depot. Can I use it for oven tile? Is there a different between sealed or glazed tile?

I wouldn't use glazed tiles for food because many glazes contain lead and since the product was not designed to be used for food it could very likely contain lead.
