My gerbils and hamster died of respiratory distress after a few weeks of using Healthy Pet bedding by Wegmans. I believed it was identical to Carefresh, but in actuality, at the corners of the bag you can find a build up of particles.
The bedding also cause health concerns from the people in the house when entering the room to feed the rodents.
I posted this information on my website and added their letter response which I scanned for this blog post. http://arrena.us/blog/wegmans-healthy-pet/healthy-pet-wegmans/1270/
They don't give a ***.
As soon as I switched the bedding--after ruling out all other variables-- I managed to prolonge the hamsters life. The hamster was the only rodent with an open wire cage, so the particles weren't as concentrated.
I will never forgive the ignorance and cruelty of their neglect.
