Noted a short article in the May 2015 Popular MechanicsĀ® about not using certain plastics in microwave ovens.
The chemicals Phthalates and BPA can leach out into the food, and may cause some people to become ill. Hormonal balance may result.
These links seem to confirm that..

Other plastic packaging may contain those chemicals.. like soda and water bottles?
The FDA is considering banning of BPA in some packaging.
