    The new bags of Purina Lay Pellets from Tractor Supply in Gilroy, CA have lots of powder and what look like rabbit pellets. Pictures:

    These look like two completely different pellets to me.

    I really hope that @JenniO11 , @DrMikelleRoeder and @Purina will have someone comment on both of these threads. Seems to me that there might be an issue with quality control at a couple of the mills and customer service at Purina?
