Personally I wouldn't worry about, depending on its density and molecular make up it either slowly decompose and be absorbed into the fuel or it won't do anything but just stay in the tank, it's not large enough to harm anything, the only thing that could conceivably happen is it get hung up on the fuel level float, but the chances of that happening is slim.

If it's plastic, i wouldn't worry about it, too big to go through and too small to block the fuel pump strainer
