I'm considering using them again.

      assuming some even got on the bag-which can be doubtful

    Chinese studies say it lives up to 9 days outside of the body. I'm more inclined to believe the Chinese scientists and doctors than the American ones.

    Just make sure to promptly discard  the bag and wash your hands after handling it (before touching your face or eating) and you should be okay.
