Cardboard in the oven...?

I bought a package of frozen eggplant parm at Trader Joe's, and the cooking instructions are to place the package (made of cardboard) directly into the oven...

The instructions specify not to place the package within, I think, 7 inches of any heating element in the oven. But still, it seems counterintuitive to place a cardboard package in a hot oven. Can anyone tell me why this is safe? Or has anyone ever prepared packaged food like this?
