Generally pelleted food does not get infested with meal moths as it probably goes through a process in the factory that kills the eggs (like heating to dry the pellets just before bagging).
Meal moths unfortunately infest seeds year round, so be sure to buy smaller quantities in the summer.
The pellets are more appealing to a meal moth because of the content, but I'm sure the seeds sit around long enough for the moths to lay eggs on them in the factory.
Feel free to ask if you may open the bag after purchase to check in store. I do this in the summer months, even buying outside of Petco because of the reputation the Meal Moths have with seeds.
Dont blame Petco for infested bags as this is a manufacturing problem.
