I forgot a tea box on top of the oven for 10 min. The box got really hot. Should I throw it away since the teabags have plastic wrappers?

Is there a cancer risk now from that heated plastic touching the teabags? Or is it fine and it would be overreacting to throw it away?

    If the plastic has melted, toss it out. If not, you are good to go.

    You wouldn't be so much “overreacting” as being an idiot. Teabags contain plastic and are meant to be in contact with temperatures of100° C.

    unless the plastic has melted onto the tea bags they should be fine.
