Sewage leak on insulation

Should all touching rows of insulation be replaced when there was a sewage leak that made one row (between joists) fall. I am concerned about mold and also sanitation because the joist is also wet.. Will the smell draw vectors?

We need more information..... Is this a crawl space with under-floor fiberglass batt insulation? What/where was leaking? Once f.g gets wet.....:

Just when you think you got it all...:
