High-Fat Foods: Fatty foods such as cheese, meat, or oily dishes can also encourage the leaching of chemicals from plastic. It's better to store these items in glass or metal containers.
Acidic Foods: Foods with high acidity, like tomatoes or citrus fruits, can react with plastic, leading to degradation of the container and possible chemical leaching.
