  1. 0 Votes

    The dailygreen.com has a great article on what the different recycling symbols  on plastics mean. If number 3 plastics are burnt, they have been shown to release toxins so you need to be careful when cooking with these types of plastics. Number 6 plastics have evidence of leaching potential toxins into food, and number 7 plastics have been shown to leach potential hormone disruptors.  Regardless of the plastic recycling number, the potential for them to leach harmful toxins can occur if they are not used properly so it is important to know what your plastic products are capable of handling.
