Ok, Even if you are storing Chicken or Meat – Strongly Suggest you get rid of your plastic containers and move to Jars. Why? Why Not? Plastic is porous and made out of OIL. Glass is much more pure. I only purchase things in Glass and I love to recycle jars for various purposes including Food Storage! I also use old jars to store Shells that I have collected around the world and sometimes when my husband buys me flowers I will use them as a vase! 🙂 Go Glass! Don’t look back! Get rid of that plastic or at least use it for storing art supplies but certainly not your food!!
