Smoked cheese question

I tried the caveman technique yesterday with some blocks of cheddar, jack, pepper jack, and mozzarella. I sampled some at 90 minutes then let it go another 30 minutes. Sometime during the process, I bumped the drop cord that was powering my 35 watt soldering iron. This apparently caused the can to shift and I ended up with a little melted plastic on the upper handle.
I used pecan and Jack Daniel's barrel chips in the can. The cheese has a faint bitter flavor. I can taste the smoke just fine, but my concern is the melted plastic.
Is that a health concern? Should I toss the cheese and start over?
I'd like to hear people's opinions on this, I was planning on serving the cheeses as appetizers for the upcoming Thanksgiving gathering. What do you think? Is the cheese safe to eat? Thanks!
