    I'm not sure this is the right place to post this question, so sorry if it isnt. I am trying to locate some food grade DE, and the place I called has some that doesnt say food grade but says safe for indoors. It is called "Concern Diatomaceous Earth" by necessary organics. I would hate to assume it's food grade and sprinkle it in our chicken run and have something go wrong. Any suggestions?

    I don't think that one is food grade because it is only 85% DE if it is the one I am thinking of.

    I bought some DE at my local Southern States last week, and I forgot to check about it being food grade, but after reading the label, it isn't. I googled DE later and there are many food grade ones to choose from listed there. If it isn't printed on the bag it isn't food grade.
