Question Type of Sand?

I've always used pet-shop bought 'chinchilla sand' for my hamsters, but am now concerned about whether it's the wrong thing or recommendations have changed. So, what sort of sand would you say is best to purchase for use in a hamster's cage? Thank you in advance

Chinchilla sand is the safest option, it does vary though, lots of us use this one & it seems to be about the best around, also sold with the new Tiny friends label now I think.

I use that one too I get it from Viovet and get two boxes at the same time to save on postage!

Oh brilliant, thank you both! I'll have to pick some up before Luna gets here (come on Zooplus, dispatch my Barney!)
