Default Aluminum Foil in the Carboy

I haven't had to post an "is my beer going to be ok" thread in a few years. Bad end to a great brew day. Brewed a Belgian Dark Strong Ale.

I had a sanitized piece of aluminum foil over the top of my starter (1 gallon growler) and as I was pouring the starter through my funnel, my pinky somehow ripped off a small piece of the tin foil and it went down the funnel into the carboy.

I feel pretty safe about contamination because that starter will certainly take hold first but is there any concern to a piece of tin foil going for the ride through fermentation?

I don't think I should be worried but I wanted to double check. Thanks!

Does the fact that it was sprayed with star san make a difference as far as it breaking down the foil?
