Are store potatoes safe for planting?

I know I can use store potatoes for seed potatoes, I have done it. But I read that store bought potatoes are sprayed to retard sprouting and this treatment causes them to retain bacteria which spreads into any plant produced when planting them. Any truth here? Is it completely safe to use store bought potatoes for seed potatoes?
