*For the last two keep an eye on the type of plastic, be aware that we now know that BPA found in certain plastics may be harmful. We also know that heating any type of plastic not specifically designed for the microwave can be dangerous so do not expose these containers to high heat and stick to plastics with recycle numbers 1, 2, 4 or 5 for food storage.
