Plastics give off a fair amount of outgassing or residues or such.
Different plastics react to heating and near melting in different ways.
Nearly all of our food touches plastic during manufacture and especially retail and getting it home. Much of it goes into a microwave with our food on or under plastic.
No one worries about that.
Many more things one could think about - what cleaners are being used on our food processing equipment, our plates and forks, and so on. Some of the dish soap is available in different colors to match your dish washing mood - how much dye stays on the plate you washed at noon when you are eating off it in the evening again? Did the dye color help your plate be any cleaner? What are we really concerned about?
But they are very concerned about crops inches tall getting 20 oz of spray -per acre- on it, weeks before any grain begins to form, months before the grain matures, and more months before the grain is processed into food.
