110v wiring behind fridge

Just a quick question. Is it an issue or good practice to run 110v romex wiring behind the fridge? Since I'm adding a larger fridge the outlet that was up in the overhead compartment will now be behind the fridge. I'd like to add an additional outlet on the opposite wall behind the fridge as well. Is the heat generated back there enough to have to either shield the wire in conduit or user armored wire? I just like to know what the best practices are for running wires back there as it is such a nice convenient place to run things.
