I had a golden retriever who would eat anything, when he was young, like your lab. I was concerned more for all the other stuff your lab ate! Eating plastic can be very bad for your dog's stomach. It also depends on how many root tabs he ate. Granted, they probably weren't good for him but his size also helps him handle it "better". Just be careful what all he actually ingest. It unfortunately was the demise of my goldie. He was 9 yrs old and he decided for some reason to eat a whole cardboard box (sm to med size). I had no idea at his age he would do that because he hadn't done anything like that in a long time. Needless to say, he got really sick. Took him to the vet the next day and that afternoon he died.

Today he vomited out about a quarter of the plastic bag that had shrimp food in it.

You need to keep your supplies in your closet or dresser drawer, please for the sake of your dog.

I do, but he's determined to get all the food he can. He has stolen food right in front of me, jumped five feet up INTO a cupboard at someone else's house, and even figured out how to open the bread box.

My lab would get into the cupboards and fridge. He even at one time got into the fridge chewed the lid off of a jar of hot peppers, ate them, drank the juice then apparently started on the lid. Somehow the bits of lid did no damage going down, but the surgery to have them removed cost me a fortune. I'm sure if he could have eaten the jar he would've. He was the most troublesome dog I ever owned.

His previous owner did very minimal training, which I've been trying to work on improving. Not only is he obsessed with food, he is also very rude! But I still love him.

I can understand. I have a 7 year old golden who spent the first 4 years of her life in an outdoor kennel. Somehow you are going to have to come up with something. Buy a safe! Jk but seriously maybe a container with a latch that's hard to open?.

Products used to "baby proof" or "baby safe" cabinets, drawers, and doors may be helpful in this case.

Or attach a latch to your fish stuff cabinet and buy a lock to put on it. That is a serious danger if he continues to eat plastic and things like root tabs. The fish food won't hurt him.
