Hello. These are not truly toxic, but they are very irritating to the gums, esophagus and stomach. They can cause ulceration and burns to the mucosal membranes. This leads to vomiting, nausea, decreased appetite and pain. In severe cases, we'll treat with anti-nausea meds, pain meds and fluids. If she is still eating/ drinking ok, then it should resolve on it's own without any specific therapy. The other issue is a foreign body. If she is vomiting and not eating, you may consider x-rays to make sure the packaging did not cause an obstruction. I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.
