    If you are really worried, just slide a piece of sheetrock between the vent and the insulation. Even 3/8" plaster lath, if you can find it will work.

    The styrofoam is blue DOW cladmate XL, I don't know if its XPS or EPS.
    I cut a strip out along the pipe, I'm happy with it because since I had 2x4 framed walls and a 4" pipe, by cutting it out it also gave me extra room so I didn't have to squish the pipe to drywall over it.
    I can't see it being any type of hazard now.

    The blue stuff and the pink stuff are both XPS. White panels (looks like a styrofoam coffee cup) are EPS.

    Sounds like you did the best option given what you had to work with.
