Hi! :)
I order my Oxbow Hay through Chewy.com.
As I was taking the garbage out today, I noticed an unopened Chewy box in the garage. There was a large bag of Oxbow Hay inside! One of my family members must have accidentally put it there.
My question:
Is it still usable? I have no idea how long it has been there (probably no longer than a few weeks). It was sealed in a cardboard box, but temperatures have been 100 degrees and higher recently, and the package says to store in a "cool, dry" area. There are also bugs in the garage. :yikes:
What do you think?
Thank you!

Open it and smell it. And check it as well.

It smells and looks normal. :)
Should I comb through it for bugs? My mom says I am stressing over nothing because it was in a sealed box, but I am not sure...
