is this treat SAFE for my rats to eat?

i bought this treat for my rats and it has sweet potato,oat groats,whole kernel corn,almonds,sunflower hearts,shelled peanuts,apricots,green peas,white potato,dark raisins,golden raisins,carrots,apple,pumpkin seed,and sulfur dioxide in it.I know you aren't supposed to feed them RAW sweet potato but all the fruits in this are sun-ripped.

Is it safe for them to eat it or not?

thanks!

I would say watch the amount that you feed because they're not supposed to have just a lot of corn or the fat that's in nuts and seeds, but everything in there should be safe in moderation.

I agree...use in moderation.
Dried corn can contain bacteria and is generally not good for them.Maybe pick the corn pieces out if you can.
