Depends, do you get off on a full lawn?
hello, that article is from 1998 but was very real. looks like they changed their formula (https://www.reviewjournal.com/loc...for-crops/) to stop using the mining tailings in the last few years after a few epa investigations (https://archive.epa.gov/nrmrl/arc...onite.html)
It seems that the information I linked to (below) is out of date and that the new formula does not contain the potentially harmful materials. Thank you GilbertM9086 for posting more up-to-date info, repped.

I don't have an opinion on this product, other than I think manufacturers should have to disclose it when their products contain materials that could be harmful, but in case anyone cares, you might want to read this before using: https://www.dirtdoctor.com/garden..._vq373.htm

With Milorganite seemingly missing from the shelves this year, this is an alternative for the "dark green" look that Milo provides.

That said, check the bags for expiration. I was at lowes last month and their Ironite was "EXP 2015"

No idea what impact that has on the quality or performance of the product, but 5 years expired is a bit much.

I'd guess no impact and that the product just isn't popular. With that said five years is quite a bit. Why put an expiration of it doesn't matter

Sales. Very often the "expiration" date is simply a time when the product is no longer 100%. It could actually have a decline rate that is as little as .1% or a half-life of decades or centuries. Fact is, it's simply just there so that the product doesn't stay on the shelf.

Milorganite is all over in my neck of the woods. I'm down to try some clearance items since I have to do 35k sqft

And, where there is Milorganite, the prices ar ranging from $15-18. Every year it goes up another $1. Gone are the days of buying 20 bags on the $8 true value deal...

Does anyone know if this product is safe to put down if I have small children and a dog playing in the yard? Thanks!

Really depends on where you live, easy to find in the Midwest but others are reporting difficulties. Check out xgrn 8-1-8 or purely organic lawn food as alternatives.
