Has she eaten anything different?  Is she ok in herself?  My reaction would be that if she's behaving normally I'd probably wait and see ... one poo could be due to a lot of things ... but if you're worried I'd give your vet a ring and see what they say.

Please don't string black cotton around the garden. It has caused countless cases of entanglement to small birds , robins goldfinches, blackbirds , some lose limbs, some lose their lives

Good to mention that  AnniD   ... ours only get a very few mealworms amongst the rest of their meal.  

And while they love Spikes Moist hedgehog food they leave Spikes Dried alone, hardly even a nibble.  Fussy things

The hedgehogs who visit our garden like this 

we sometimes add some sunflower hearts, chopped peanuts, dried mealworms, dried banana chips ... but not too much as they can be bad for their teeth.

Moist chicken based cat food is also suitable.  Not the sort with jelly
