I've been buying products from San Francisco Herb and Natural Products for years.
Recently the company was shut down.
"The California Department of Public Health has told NBC Bay Area News that a massive rodent infestation has lead the state agency to shut down a major East Bay food distributor and request that the company launch a nationwide recall. The actions came after the state learned about a two-month NBC Bay Area investigation.The state agency placed an embargo on Fremont-based San Francisco Herb and Natural Food Company".

I feel cheated ..... Was I paying good money for  quality rat poop and pee ?.
Apparently the mice and rats were nesting inside the bags and were disposed before sale of the contaminated product.
apparently the owner Barry Melzer personally ordered rat poop to be sifted out, product repackaged and sold ...GROSS
