I picked up a box of DE today for $3.99. I can't find where it specifically says food grade on it. It says for drying and dehydrating and has pics of flowers and vegetables on it. It says it is natural fossil shells finely ground. Is this the right product?

Thanks!

Is there a phone # somewhere on the box that you can call? If it doesn't specifically say food grade, I'd be afraid to use it on the birds until I knew otherwise.

I can't find a phone number just a website; it does say it can be applied directly onto foliage. The company name is Growmore.

I found a phone number and they reassured me that it is definitely food grade although he sounds surprised I wanted to use it in the chicken coop. I am still nervous about sprinkling it out there.

I agree better left to use on your plants to prevent bugs, then risk using it on the chickens. If it doesn't say food grade on it, it is not food grade and wouldn't be safe! Good Luck....
