Burned Plastic In Oven
Okay, so a couple of minutes ago, I was about to make a Pizza, so I preheated the oven, except I forget to take out all the assorted pots and pans.

I Realized my mistake when I smelled burning plastic in the living room, none of the plastic actually melted onto the stove, but the stench is lingering in the kitchen.

My question is, Is it safe to stay in the house with the fumes, and, will the pizza be infused with said toxic fumes lingering in the oven? (The Oven itself doesn't actually smell, and the smell is not very strong).

Throw out the pizza, air out the house and leave for a while.

Just to be clear, I only put the pizza in there after I had taken out the pots and pans, and they didn't burn for very long, should I Still throw it out?

I recently saw some research results that even the TV dinner plastic trays will cause cancer over time if you heat food in them. Hot plastic is very nasty!

Follow everybody else's advice.

For my words however:

Next put a bunch of foil in your microwave.

NO NO NO... no no no no ... Ammonia and bleach will become chloramine vapor, with a potential for hydrazine formation. This is extremely dangerous and toxic vapors will be produced.
