I noticed the mention of some sort of corn fiber bedding there as well. That would be absolutely unacceptable too, since corn is not suited to bedding usage(molds much too easily to be safe, typically fine as a food ingredient for hamsters though).

There's also this mentality here of "well they do (insert thing) in Germany so it must be fine". I don't always see it, but we really need to be careful with that mentality - not everything people do in one country is automatically safe, and where there are associated risks with unnecessary products we should not simply ignore them because Germany uses it. I know Germany has some valuable information for hamster care but nothing is perfect!
