Debris in fuel pump.

So some of you knows that I was having issues with my gas gauge not reading the fuel lever properly. So I brought it to another shop near my area, tested everything still hot working but anyhow this is what came out of the fuel pump when they pulled it out from the tank.

Unbelievable I know, so why do I pay and this I what come out of my pump.

I don't think it is because when I looked closely it didn't look like dirt but rather little piece of black rubber or plastic, those look to big to be dirt in my opinion.

There are supposed to be sock filters that the pumps draw through. Did you fish any of the debris out of the fuel to feel it?

How do these debris not get to the injectors? The particles are easily large enough to plug them.
