Anything scented should not be used, hedgies have a very strong sense of smell and some will freak out lol.

I wouldn't use it, I would take it back to the store and get something unscented. Scented products shouldn't be used with a hedgehog.

Kaytees has an unscented version of the bedding, so just exchange it. Most hedgehogs are quite sensitive to anything with a scent and it can also cause allergies/skin irritation in some cases.

I'd be scared to use it because it's such tiny little bits.

The bedding in itself is fine as long as your hedgehog isn't trying to eat it, but I would exchange it for the unscented version just to be sure.
