Good question, I guess they could rebag whatever they want or whatever is easiest for a particlular area. Don't really know for certain. I have also seen some that really don't know and say things untrue. If NEWP is popular and they want to move there pellets. Guess they can say whatever they want as its hard to prove. My local Agway sells named brand pellets so, I will be not much help here. I suppose we could all contact our local agway stores that carry them and see what there saying?
