    i have used the stuff on ebay
    all it is is rock salt treated with mag and dye
    it wont flow though a push spreader
    we have used it in a v box spreader when we were in a bind

    the company (lawn and landscape co.) takes bulk salt
    treats it themselves
    then put it in clear plastic bags
    this is the stuff you see on ebay
    i have no clue what fastenal sells for ice met but this is what is sold on ebay
    the co. is located in iowa city. is that the deicer you are asking about
