gas dryer venting


my gas dryer currently vents through a 10ft length of single wall vent which is fully enclosed between joists in pink batt insulation, then vents outside. Is this a fire/code hazard. Should this be a b vent? Are single wall vents allowed to be in contact like this? Just bought house. thanks

Drier vents are single wall and have no set amount distance from combustables since they are not hot, just warm. You're fine the way it is.
