Despite being a multibillion-dollar industry, the rising awareness among consumers about the dangers associated with microwaving foods packed in plastic wraps or containers is anticipated to suppress the microwaveable foods market’s growth to an extent. Certain plasticizers such as BPA and phthalates are endocrine disrupters, which have an adverse impact on the human health since they mimic human hormones. To ensure safety of the population, the U.S. FDA closely monitors and regulates the plastic containers used for packaging in the food and beverages industry. It is mandatory for the manufacturers in the industry to conduct proper tests to ensure that the containers meet the stringent FDA standards.
