Did it leak, or did the plastic bag melt and stick to the pan ? Or did the non-stick surface in the pan burn ?

I would check at cooking sites - but if just a stain (as opposed to burnt plastic) I would say a bleaching or good washing with an oxidizing cleaner would take care of it - or if bare metal pan scouring pad and asrasive scouring powder.

If burnt plastic, unless a bare metal pan which you can scour with abrasive scouring powder, I would not hold out great hopes. If you know the manufacturer I would send their customer service department an eMail describing exactly what happened and they may be able to help.

Otherwise, for a non-stick coated pan, while acetone or a paint remover might take it off, it might as well take off the coating too. Before using something as aggressive as those though, I would work up through the usual methods (any of which would certainly be followed by a couple of complete washings with normal dish soap to remove oils or chemical taste) - WD40, non-abrasive mechanics hand cleaner, bumper sticker remover in increasing aggressiveness.
