Is is safe to microwave food in plastic containers ?

I have just  reposted an interesting article from the Daily Mail asking the above question. Basically, there is a suggestion that harmful toxins could be released from plastics and absorbed by the food when heated in a microwave. Certainly the quality of the plastic containers that the food is supplied in does vary. As there is some research going already, to be sure that there is no harm the best solution currently would be to transfer food from its packaging to proper microwave containers. All of the microwave cookware we sell at  is proper microwave cookware and is known to be safe for food use in a microwave oven. We will of course keep an eye on this and report any further findings.
