Cookie crumbs

I was eating some cookies, and afterwards I decided to do start building a new PC. I then noticed that some cookie crumbs had fallen inside the PC!

I didn't have the motherboard inside the PC, but the power supply, hard drives, and optical drive were installed in the case. I took off the side panels and shook out the case. I don't see any crumbs inside it, but would any stray food crumbs inside the PC that I may have missed cause any problems down the line?

Just want to make sure before I start building.

I don't think crumbs are conductive, but they definitely don't belong.
buy a can of compressed air and dust it good, then build on.

Ok, I have tried the compressed air. What would happen if there were still a few crumbs left in the case after I completed the build? Or what would happen if some crumbs fell into the PC from one of the vents in the case?

I'm sure this has happened to someone else out there, since PC cases these days are full of holes. Should I be concerned?
