It would probably depend on what is in the breadcrumbs. Is it labelled for hermit crabs, or for another animal?

Breadcrumbs should be safe. That food is not a complete diet (all carbs) but it’s fine to offer.

Does it give the ingredients for the breadcrumbs? What kind of flour, oil, salt, etc?

Bread products for animals aren't well regulated. For labelling, they seem to be able to get away with just breadcrumbs, or bakery product. That isn't telling everything and honestly makes me nervous.

it doesn’t tell me anything ab the breadcrumbs
so should i stop giving it to them?
bc i would feel bad since they eat this more than the fresh foods i leave for them but i would never want to harm them
