Plastic soup

During lunch yesterday, I witnessed a disturbing sight at my favorite food stall, which I frequent. I witnessed how the stall owners topped up their soup in one of the metal receptacles at their counter. The stall assistant scooped out ladle by ladle of the boiling hot and cooked soup from the stewing large metal pot into a big PLASTIC container and proceeded to pour the hot soup from the container into the metal receptacle at the counter.

Some plastic containers are able to withstand high temperatures but not for some (I have discussed about this in my earlier post on Plastic Identification Code some months back). Thus it would be shuddering if the plastic containers used as a temporary hold for the boiling soup is of substandard quality: we would be eating more than what we pay for and these things are definitely what we do not want to eat.
