    I think some crumbs got into the small crevice where the MBPr trackpad meets the rest of the notebook.

    Is there a way to get it out?

    Only by disassembling the computer. Check out the guides over at iFixit to see how easy/difficult that is.

    I believe if you take it apart you should be able to clean out the trackpad but I'm not totally sure since I haven't needed to do that.
