Ate cupcake and felt sharp in throat, found staple in the bite, can feel the staple in throat

Hi, I bit into a cupcake this morning and swallowed a bit to find it slightly sharp in my throat . And then I found a staple in the rest of my bite. I m pretty sure I swallowed a staple because I can feel it in my throat. I don t know what to do, should I go to the ER? I don t want to make a big deal out of a situation that may be nothing at all. What should I do?
