Coir and salt

Had this email today

I'm hoping you will be able to advise me on this. I'm looking at stocking your coir blocks in my shop in the future but there has been some recent discussion among snail keepers about batches from other brands potentially being salt contaminated due to proximity to the sea. I personally know that yours is safe, i've used it for years with my own snails and other inverts, but I wanted to do a double confirmation if possible so I can say to any customers with concerns that i've been assured it won't contain any. Unfortunately there has been in recent years some issues with some reptile specific coir, particularly with hermit crabs, that has made people who were around then wary.
