Yes, there are two locations where handle is attached to a kettle including filter/mesh which are in contact with water. I am not sure about this kind of plastic and it's toxicity, but I have the same concern.
Anyway I bought this kettle because I like it's look. I did my search which took many hours and could not find any kettle without plastic parts inside and in contact with water.
