Microwave Popcorn Fire Hazard
Microwave popcorn has the potential to be a fire hazard if the popcorn isn’t cooked the right way.
Microwave popcorn comes in a paper bag that is cooked in the microwave. The bag can withstand hot temperatures for the few minutes it takes to pop the corn in the bag; however, if the microwave bag is left to cook for too long, there’s a risk that it will ignite a fire.
In most cases, microwave popcorn catches fire when it is left unattended. When cooking microwave popcorn, you should stay close and listen for the popping. When the popping slows to 1 pop every 2 to 3 seconds, the popcorn is ready to eat.
