    Hmmm…believe the operative word was “clear.”

    But it was a soup container! No description of ‘soup container’… I’m easily confused

    But it was documented by a great lens.

    Sweetie, that IS a clear container. Oh well, now you know.

    My salute to you. I would have stomped around the kitchen, asking myself why this happened to me. Instead you document it and publish it to the world. Very fearless. You should give anti-stress lessons.

  6. Very Zen-like, don’t you think?

    What is the sound of one container melting?

  8. Rick Brown says:

    I am right there with you Chris. If soup is in a container, regardless of color, it is by definition: in a soup container.

    Hate it when I RTFM and still get it wrong…

  10. "The Spouse" aka the copywriter says:

    Whole Foods failed to write “in parallel” – introducing something that’s in a container, e.g. soup with types of containers.
    Correct copy should have read:
    Clear containers are not microwave safe
    Black containers are microwave safe
    Paper containers are microwave safe.

    Thank you for posting this! I had my clear SOUP container in my microwave and was still grappling with the warning label when I decided to google the answer. I saw your melted soup disaster and stopped the microwave before it was too late.
