Is smelling burnt plastic harmful?

stinar7 asked the Naked Scientists:
Hi Chris,

My name is Christina... I wasn't sure who to ask so I googled my question & it directed me to you... I was preheating oven & didn't see that a plastic lid was stuck on the top. It melted completely, when opening oven the smell went through my whole apt & I have a 2yr old.
How harmful is the smell of burnt plastic? I did open all windows & door.

If you happen to know the answer or even who I can ask. I would appreciate it.

Thank You for your help!


What do you think?
