As others have mentioned, the biggest issue with water bottles in place of glass (or better bottles...I think) is their higher O2 permeability. That means that they are fine for primary fermentation or short secondary fermentation, but should be avoided for long-term ageing.

These bottles are PET bottles. Same plastic as the plastic carboys that can be purchased for fermentation, and the same plastic used for alcoholic beverages (whiskey, vodka, etc)
And they're food safe. Which as warthaug mentioned is for all foods, not a specific one.
I personally dont like plastics for food usage and try to minimize its usage, but that's really my own hangup. Although I prefer glass and stainless whenever possible, the evidence suggests that PET plastic is perfectly fine.
