oil change: firewall debris into filter housing

Today while changing the oil in my 190e 2.6, I accidently knocked some small chunks of foam insulation off the firewall pad (which is kind of crumbling) and it fell into the oil filter housing when the filter was off. I did my best to suction all of it out with my topsider by repeatedy inserting into the area until I was getting absolutely nothing up the tube, and I think I got all of it. Do I run any risk of clogging something up if a few small particles remained out reach? (hard to see down into the housing very far)

Just curious - next time I will shield the area with some plastic or something...
