I think it's safe to assume that most or at least many milk containers are heated. In fact, I was told by someone who distributes milk that the way it works generally is that the bottles are formed from plastic pellets that are heated and then blown into a mold to form the actual jug. But one can also buy non-heated containers. So... I know HDPE #2 has been shown to be extremely stable, but I've also heard that when it's heated it can leach? Does anybody know of any research done on this? Just wondering how much it might be leaching... And, no, I'm not saying I think it's dangerous or bad necessarily (I still drink milk). Simply looking for info.
