Default Lump & insulation

I opened a new bag of RO lump for a spatchcocked chicken today. Found a couple of small pieces of insulation when I poured it into the Akorn. Not the first time, won't be the last. My question is where does the insulation come from? Is it from the kilns they make the lump in, or---?

Well, that would explain some of the smells I've been getting from RO lately.

its known that lump might have "extras" in the bag. its found in differant brands. most will go through the lump before burning as i do. but i rarely find anything. those that go through more bags will find more.

I thought RO was perfect and all other brands had foreign material in it?
