Brief Answer:
No need to worry

Detailed Answer:
Dear Ursulabiala, There is no need to worry . plastic wraps are designed to be used in contact with foods. so, they are made of materials that are known to be non toxic. it will pass through your digestive tract undigested and will pass out in your stools . so there is nothing to do. I hope I answered your question .
