Plastic bags are ubiquitous in our lives. Many restaurants like to use plastic bags to pack food. Such an approach is unsanitary and unscientific. Plastic bags should not be directly filled with hot or oily food. If you are not sure whether the plastic bag is safe, avoiding using it to hold overheated or oily food is one of the ways to reduce the hazard. Unsafe plastic bags mainly contain harmful substances such as dyes and heavy metals. The oil contained in oily foods such as meat, fish, and fried dough sticks is actually a kind of solvent, which can precipitate harmful substances in plastic bags; while high temperature will soften the plastic, which can also promote the precipitation of harmful substances, leading to poisoning. Therefore, it is safer to store vegetables or frozen food at room temperature. Of course, you should try not to use plastic bags to store food. You can bring your own basket or cloth bag when buying vegetables. When you have to use it, you should also take out the food in the plastic bag as soon as possible after returning home.
