 I kept on using it. I noticed the grinding became less, and eventually went away completely after a few days. The lens worked perfectly since then and never had any problems.

Ever wonder what happened with the sand since the grinding noise stopped...?

Anyway, if so there is a high risk that Canon will recommend part replacements if you ever need to have it repaired/professionally cleaned.
