Mid Agri Beet Pulp Shreds & New Packaging

Our Mid Agri beet pulp shreds have always been in a 40lb paper bag. The plain shreds were labeled beet pulp and the other type was labeled "with molasses added". I bought a new bag the other day and it was in the fancy plastic coated bags like Purina uses. I really didn't think much about it till I opened the bag this morning. The shreds are darker and smaller than the old ones and had a huge molasses smell. I'm really wondering if I don't need to rinse this a couple of times just to be on the safe side.

Anybody else gotten a bag with the new packaging and noticed a difference?

You have to look very closely at the bags to see "With Molasses." For me, it's like finding Waldo, but it's there.

My wholesaler told me that there really is a negligible amount of molasses in the "with molasses" kind-I don't remember how much per ton, but I was surprised at how little there was.

Go ahead and rinse it.

It should say "With Molasses" underneath "Beet Pulp Shreds" in black letters on the front.

This is supposed to be the "without" molasses but in a new improved bag. Yeah....the paper ones tore easily and were dustier but they didn't trap the strong smell like the plastic bag does. I rinsed and really didn't get anything more than I used to with the old paper bag version. Oddly enough, that smell dissipated the longer it was out of the bag. Smelled just like normal when wet.

I guess everything is ok but it sure did get my attention at first.
