Default Foil in fermenter

Hi I dropped a sanatized piece of foil in my fermenter on accident. It was the size of a postage stamp. Any worries here? Thanks

Should be fine. Some people say you shouldn't ferment in an aluminum container because the low beer ph may cause leeching (resulting in metallic off flavors, etc). But I doubt that a piece that small will cause any problems.
