Is it safe to connect PCA9671 outputs to ground?

The PCA9671 features a quasi-bidirectional output, where a 100 uAmp pullup current is applied to the IO when configured high.  The datasheets lists a high livel output current of maximum 300 uAmps and a typical transient boosted pullup of 1 mA under the conditions VOH=VSS.  Does this imply that it is safe to connect the IO pins directly to ground?

 

Many thanks.
