I would do a lot of experimenting... correct me if i'm wrong but i would first try and submerge whatever you can into water with sterilizer for up to three days... then try lemon juice... if it still lingers... possibly use bleach etc etc If its plastic stuck to plastic... it'll be very hard if not impossible to fully get rid of it...

If it's not a self-cleaning oven, just turn it on 'Bake' at the highest heat, and let it go for about three hours (turn the exhaust fan on High).

Some residue from the container is still in the oven. Turn on the oven with nothing inside and let it burn all the residue off. I did this very thing once, many years ago. I can laugh at myself now!
