Default Shredded paper a problem?

I just got home from work and when I asked my children if Luna was good they said "she's cold, she is hiding in the snow" then I went to check on her and her tank was full of shredded paper; while I was removing it she seem to like it and she was playing with it... I know they are very delicate to dust but is it any kind of dust? I removed it all but I just figured I would ask to make sure

Wow. Uhhmmmm. OK, any kind of dust can cause some issues. Amount and their current state will make a difference, just as it will with us. I'm coming down with a bug right now so I'm effected by a smaller amount.
You basically want to keep an eye out for signs of an upper respiratory infection. Runny nose, sneezing, labored breathing, licking her nose.

Paper also becomes very cold when wet as it's slow to dry and can cause a hedgehog to become chilled.
