Should I throw away all my plastic bags because I saw a roach?

(I can't believe I'm using my question on this)So tonight in my apartment, I saw 1 roach scurry across my floor. I freaked out, searched previous questions and am getting ready for battle, because there's never just 1 roach. I read about them liking to hide and lay eggs in plastic bags. I have a ton of plastic bags that I was going to recycle tomorrow, but now I'm worry that they're infested with roaches and roach eggs. I'd really like to recycle the bags, but I don't want roaches in my car or infest the place I'm taking them to. Should I throw the plastic bags out? If I move all the plastic bags will roaches just fall out of them like in a scene from Joe's Apartment or some bug horror movie?
