Thank you. So you dont believe there was any risk to my 4 year old child? I am concerned as polystyrene melted on high temperature and released harmful substances to pizza which she ate. I could also feel a bit of a strange smell

As a father of five as well as surgeon I can assure you that the same thing has happened on multiple occasions in my family and all my kids have -- mostly (The middle daughter is a bit cantankerous) -- turned out to be wonderful adults who have been able to supply my Wife and I with a pack of perfectly healthy grandkids.

You can put your fears to matter what The Evil Dr. Google may have told you.

Make sense to you?
