Hi Ashlie,
the batches that were last ID'd as bad were from January, March, May
and June of 2000. The batch number you specify was NOT on the list.
I really can't say whether you should trust Performance Foods or not,
everyone I talk to swears by T/F, but I am relatively new to ferrets
and don't have alot of experience to base it on. I'd certainly let
Performance Foods know about that other person with the stinky bag
from the same batch!
What does your ferret(s) poop look like? Does it appear to be
upsetting their stomachs?
Bottom line for me--the food's expensive!--but if I really felt funny
about it, I would not use it!

Good luck, keep in touch!
