Pipe fragments fell into dry return

I was chiseling out broken thread on old main vent riser and it fell into the pipe. About 3 or 4 fragments. Is this gonna lodge somewhere and clog system? Happened right before Hartford loop.

    What size pipe and how big are the fragments?

    It probably will never cause an issue

    If you can't retrieve it easily I wouldn't worry about it. Or wait until summer to dismantle. I doubt it will cause a problem
