Does anyone get concerned with the metal quality (is it human grade? Yes it's a real thing) being bad for their pups?

The nuclear explosions in the 1940-50s resulted in a rise in background radiation levels across the world; because steel production requires atmospheric air, all steel after this period is contaminated to a certain extent with airborne radionuclides including cobalt-60. (interestingly this is why radiosensitive devices like geiger counters are made from steel sourced from scuttled ships produced before the war). Since then the radioactive levels have dropped but there are still some scrap steel that is recycled through the supply chain. The answer is "yes" any bowl made of steel can cause harm if it was made from steel alloy produced in an unregulated market.

Petco had to recall steel bowls for this exact reason (contamination with cobalt-60) fairly recently. The bowls in the OP are extremely cheap and made in the United States (expensive), so it's reasonable to be concerned about the source of the steel used to make them. That also doesn't mean that a more expensive bowl won't have any risk. I doubt you're going to be able to find any bowl manufacturer that specifies the origin of the steel materials they use in the manufacturing process. You may want to consider a bowl made of a different material (like ceramic stoneware) however I don't know if those have their own risks..
