I stand corrected. Even pure U-238 is (minimally) radioactive, it seems.
The larger point remains: this is a substance that is widely considered safe enough to be used in ceramic glazing, sailboat keels, race cars, oil drills, etc. (Although, admittedly, not safe enough that you'd want to turn it in to a powder and disperse it into the air or water.)
