Exclamation Urgent help needed!! Piggies eaten plastic!!

Ahh!! I just went to check on my pigs after a long work day and notice a piece of a plastic bag (from pen, that was in a garbage bag next to their cage) They got to a whole bunch, and I can't find too many big pieces in their cage. They have food and water and I gave them a large piece of green pepper each. They're both eating and/or drinking, and not really acting funny at all. I'm going to clean out their cage not just in case there's more plastic.

Is there anything else I should I do? Should I call a vet for advice?

Ya, over 24 hours later, they seem fine. Nothing unusual, and I made sure to get my garbage bag AWAY from their cage. But, ya, they seem fine, still eating and drinking, don't think there are any problem.
Thank you for replying
