Default Why do non-meat products have minimum temps?

I bought a package of Simply Potatoes at the grocery store and the instructions made it clear that they had to be heated to at least a specific temperature. I've also seen the same warnings on my frozen veggie meat products.

For a package of something that is supposed to be just potatoes and onions, why do I have to heat them to a minimum temperature? Are they treated with something? I can eat raw potatoes if I want to and it shouldn't cause me any health issues. I have the same question about my frozen veggie products - if it doesn't contain meat, then why must it be cooked to a minimum temperature?
