Plastic roast twine?

What's up with the plastic strings on my roast?

I'm preparing a pot roast to cook tomorrow in a slow cooker. I noticed that while the roast is tied up with the usual twine, the strings themselves are connected with plastic strings, like a netting. I've never noticed a roast to have plastic strings before in addition to the usual twine.
The plastic strings run perpendicular to the twine, and they aren't removable because the twine and the plastic is woven together. I don't have any twine here at the moment and it's 11 PM so I can't run out to get any, else I would just re-tie it.
I need to brown this roast before I set it to cooking, but I'm afraid the plastic will melt. What do I do? Who the hell ties a roast with plastic? Did I miss a memo somewhere?
