Everything that I've read says that the red elder is poisonous, or at least not edible.

Does anyone eat the flowers or fruit of red elderberry, Sambucus
racemosa?  Fruit is bitter.  I bought one more than 20 years ago.
Nursery said it was the edible kind of elderberry.  I didn't know
better. Started spreading and I cut them down every year but they
survived.  I have a big one next to my house that is thriving and I
gave up extermination and accept it.  Black elderberries here die to
the ground in winter and feebly grow back and give just a few
berries.  Not as hardy as red.

Walleye fishing was great today.
