    something called Perma Guard Fossil Shell Flour. It says it's an anti-caking agent composed of ground DE to mix into animal feed. What the heck is it? I don't think I should have to pay $11.00 to ship this stuff back either!! [​IMG]

    Have you called the company you ordered it from? Generally speaking, most places will pay the shipping if the error was their fault.

    Ditto - you got what you ordered... I think PermaGuard is the company that packages it.
    Most Food-Grade DE is Permaguard Brand.
    Here is where I got mine... click the label at the bottom and you can read it is repackaged from Permaguard...

    So do you just mix it in with their feed?
