Oh Buddy! The good news is that I would only expect some GI signs (vomiting or diarrhea) from that, not toxic effects. More concern would be obstruction from eating the plastic tray. Do you know if he ate the tray?

Monitor for not eating or vomiting...if those occur give pepcid AC twice daily (10mg medium dog, 20mg big dog) and feed bland food like boiled chicken/hamburger and rice.

If it continues get to a vet for an xray to look for a blockage.
