So your concerned about something being on the floor? You do know hops grow outdoors, near dirt, bugs and any other thing you could imagine.

The key word in this statement is "near".

Chile dogs are one of my favorite food groups.

Personally, I would be more concerned with paying more for a pound of dust, the stuff that is the leftover byproduct of the harvest, than I would pay for a pound of actual hops...

Got two pounds, thanks.

I'm going to be the hop dust fairy. Chest hair glistening in the sun from under my tutu, sprinkling the world with green magic.

+1

Especially since it's most likely a leftover blend of remnants from many harvests [spanning a period of a couple years] that may perhaps be lacking in aa%, aroma, and overall quality.

Don't think hops are clean. They are flowers that grow on bines outdoors. Birds crap on them, they are dirty, they are plants.

The machines that harvest hops aren't clean. The machinery that processes hops aren't exactly clean.

Hop dust shouldn't scare you. Is it an inferior product? Sure, It's hop dust. But it's not inherently more dirty than hops.

I'm more concerned with the fact that the Amarillo harvest was decimated this year, and you probably aren't even going to be seeing any a month from now. Also, I've just recently spent nearly $200 on hops and I needed some cheap Amarillo. This fit the bill perfectly. I'll probably dump half the bag in one batch

What would make you think that? You think they just leave that stuff under the machine for years and then eventually scrape it up? I guarantee you this if from this year.
