Default tractor supply no longer will sell active charcoal?!

:eek: well i was just going to stock up on Emergency supplies when i was at Tractor supply i noticed they were running a sale on "active charcoal" but they had been Sold out...so i asked if they had anymore.... it was down to 99 CENTS! A TUBE! she said no...not only no but they wouldn't be carrying it anymore..so then i asked "could you happen to tell me what other TSC stores have it in stock so i can get some??"....she called 2 places...then looked it up in there system. in the whole state of Florida, as of Friday only 2 tubes had been left in the whole state.... one....4 hours away, one 3 hours away from me....she then tried to call around and find it in other stores to be shipped.... tractor supply will no longer be selling the active charcoal...once its sold out its gone....:eek:.....anyone else find this to be true?


The only other product i can find is from jeffer which is called "ToxiBan"

http://www.jefferspet.com/toxiban/camid/LIV/cp/VM-T1/

I live in Barbados, and can't seem to get anything that I need.

I go to the pet store, in the aquarium section, they have activated charcoal that's in small pellet forms (looks like small pieces of coal). every time I see my darn goat eat avocado, I sprinkle it in her food. she eats it with the rest of it. if I were really worried, i'd probably put the pieces in a blender/coffee grinder so I can drench.

The feed stores around here are selling clay in the place of charcoal. It comes in the tube like the charcoal did, and is intended for the same purpose. I haven't had to use it yet, but the cattle farmers around here say it works as well.. apparently the FDA determined that charcoal was no longer acceptable for use at least in dairy cows (not sure about meat). It's kind of odd, because the tube I have at least isn't marked for any sort of withdrawal time... meat or milk...

My TSC has never carried charcoal since I have been out here. I don't think any of the feed stores do either... I think some items are just not bought regularly and the store can't keep tossing items that expire (if they have an expiration date) and replacing them, only to have those expire too.

I dont see the tube I bought from them on jeffers site but I do see the Toxi-ban and it looks to be what would work.

I grabbed the last two tubes I saw at my TSC for $.99 too.. It's a bummer... Glad I grabbed mine when I did!

Our tractor supply doesn't seem to have anything to begin with so I doubt they ever had charcoal, I know I have never seen it.

I haven't been able to find it anywhere either. What is the clay and where do you get it.
