Not necessarily, but potentially dangerous to read. If they've kept the Protestant 'highly favoured', what else in there supports Protestant doctrine? 'Overseer' isn't wrong, since that's part of what a bishop does, but most Protestants deny the need for clergy, and translate episkopos as 'overseer' to support their theology.

If a Catholic Bible can't even get those things right, what else is lurking in there? Maybe if you know your faith well enough and are reading multiple translations, it's fine, but there are plenty of Catholics who don't know the faith and could be led astray by such things - when their Protestant friends point out things like 'overseer' and tell them that bishops are a distortion introduced later, maybe they start to have doubts. But the bishops today are more worried about offending other religions than teaching the truth, and so they approve things like this.

No translation is perfect, but some are better than others, and it's best to be cautious of Protestant versions of Scripture that have been adapted for Catholic use. Given what's been going on in the Church since the 1960s, I don't particularly trust newer translations to be completely Catholic - remember, the footnotes of the NAB have an imprimatur, too.
