for peace of mind
call the number on the bag and ask them
since it might be normal with Purina feed.. but for peace of mind i would encourage you to call them and ask
or you can return it to the store and get a new bag
but be sure to open the bag right in the store the 2nd time to check.. so you don't have to drive back and forth like this

if you are picking up another bag of the same brand.. be sure to open it right there in the store after you paid for it.
since if needed you can exchange for another one right there and then .. no need to drive back and forth.
feed should be store in a cool and dry place but not all stores will do that :/
I have always found Purina or any other commercial not organic brand smells that way. Nutrena Feather Fixer has a really gross smell! I've said that for years, but everyone says it has to be old or bad. Must have been that way at every store for 23+ years! Local feed or organic commercial always has a sweet clean grain smell. If the starter feed was organic, it was not medicated.
