The problems are related to the chemicals that it is treated with. If those boards date to 2003, they may probably contain some combination of chromium, copper and arsenic. Chromium and arsenic have been linked to cancer. Even if they are more recent you just don't want to be using them in any application where they will be near food or drink or where they will be inside given the chemicals that they are treated with to discourage rot and wood boring insects.
