Just taken delivery of a new batch of Nekton-MSA to find what looks like Re-Branding or re-labelling of the product. I was very careful not get the "bird" equivalent so made sure the label on the product look the same as I ordered previously. When it arrived this morning it has a different label.

everything on the label indicates it the same as previous. Maybe is the difference between the German labelling and the English version.

I have attached a photo. Left image is the original, right image is the new.

Yes, it changed last year. It's the same product, just updated label. They have green tops now too. Just make sure it's sealed as some unscrupulous dealers are selling opened products in smaller packs to make money themselves which is illegal. Don't buy from eBay or online tortoise product sellers, there are some very dodgy people around ;)

I purchased nekton for the first time this week. The one I have looks practically the same as the photo in this topic but just want to double check because of the label

The best place is Amazon. Sell by dates vary obviously, but shelf life once opened is not the same thing at all. Unless you gave several large tortoises I always recommend you get the small 40g size. Order it now but don't open it until you get the tortoise. There will be a foil seal under the screw on top. If you pierce this in several places with a pin, this makes it easy to sprinkle :)

I'll try the pin idea the next time I order this. :)
