What do the symbols mean on my new Tupperware and on the kid's dishes I just got at Kmart?

What do the new "plasticware care symbols" mean on the plastic dishes I have just bought? They are on new Tupperware and on kids' dishes from Kmart.

The Tupperware symbols that I have found listed are:

Arrows forming a triangle = recyclable.  A number in the middle specifies the type of plastic used.

A inverted wine glass with water drops = top rack dishwasher safe

A wine glass & a fork = food safe (plastic will not leech into food)

Wavy lines = microwavable (reheating only, less than 100% power)

Oven mitt = oven safe

Snowflake = freezer safe

I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

Au also stands for Astronomical Unit. An Au is the mean distance from the Sun to the Earth and is used to state the distances to other planets. This way it keeps the numbers smaller to deal with.
