Because it's been subjected to heat? I don't know that that does any harm to the food the spatula may touch in the future. I doubt it, but await until someone more knowledgeable posts.

I melted the handle of a potato peeler in a similar fashion, years ago, have kept it, and thus have a unique potato peeler.

I'm not sure what you referring to, the spatula or the cast iron skillet which may have to be thrown away. Certainly not the skillet.

Can you get it out? Re-heat it OR put into the freezer for a couple of hours and then chip it out.

@sullyfish6,
That was my thought; that the patula was fused to the skillet. I wouldn't spend a lot of time on it, though. Cast iron cookware isn't Chef Emerl in terms of price, and the spatula is a goner.

@Butrflynet,
I had the same problem with a pot and a plastic item inside it.

I heated the pot on my barbecue grill and it burned out the plastic. In order to get the scorch marks out of the inside of the pot, I left bleach in it overnight, then washed the pot about 3 or 4 times before using it for food. That was a few years ago; the pot is still being used.

Just pour in about 1/2 cup of molten thermite and the spatula will quickly be dissociated from the frying pan.

Be aware the local paint store will give you some funny looks when you start ordering ingredients.
