Warning! I am not a medical professional.

However, I asked a doctor and she seemed to think it would be okay.

She seemed to think that rust would just look like iron to your body and it would be consumed like food. So, I guess it is safe.

(Nota bene. If the container is rusting so bad you swallow sharp flakes of metal, that is bad. The Chinese used to assassinate people that way.)
