Default My Kaytee Clean & Cozy bedding looks different this time. Normal?

My new bag of bedding came in large clumps (bottom) when it's always came in finer shreds before (top). It also seems a bit more dusty than normal but that could just be because I had to fluff it up way more than I usually do. My 49.2ltr bag normally lasts me quite a while but this time half the bag is gone after one deep cleaning.

As long as it's safe I'm not concerned even if I do much prefer the finer shreds as it's far softer and a little went a long way. Has anyone else had their bedding arrive like this?

It looks ok as far as I can tell, it does vary a bit from one batch to another but as long as it's not extremely dusty I wouldn't worry.

I've only started using kaytee c&c. I've had about 4 bags and all hav looked like the bottom one. It's just been super compressed so you need to fluff it up a lot.

Clean and Cozy seems to have a lot of inconsistencies like this. Not sure why, but it should be fine.

I've also only recently started using it and all my bags have looked like the bottom lot in the photo. In the last bag I found a single long piece of paper about 20cm long and 10cm wide amongst the compressed material. Not a problem as I just tore it up and used it.

I don't think it's anything to be worried about. I use Kaytee Clean & Cozy, and I experienced the same thing you did, but I just used it. I'm pretty sure there's nothing to be worried about. They just vary from batch to batch. Like other people said, if it's dusty you probably shouldn't use it, but mine have never been dusty.

I too have been having problems with the kaytee bedding, At first when I started getting it, I got the white and for a while everything was fine until I picked up my order and noticed the quality wasn't the same and compared it to what I had. As a devoted hamster mom, I took it back to P@H and showed the guy and the stuff that I'm used to getting and I got a refund, I always make sure I have plenty at home when I order. I then decided to give the Natural kaytee a try and everything was fine for a few months. With every bag, I go through it and I started finding big hard clumps and staples, but the worse bit was finding a used plaster which had a stain on and having a look, it looked like dried blood. I felt sick and so angry. Again I returned it and got a refund and a gift card.
What annoys me is that it's expensive and I expect quality. I'm now going back to carefresh.
