|Black walnut shells are toxic, regular ones aren't. You may know from having horses not to ever use black walnut shavings as they can even cause a horse to founder just by standing on them. And hardly anything grows under black walnut trees! Regular walnuts , the kind found in grocery stores and food, etc are fine as are the shells, shavings etc.
Black walnits are a specialty item anyway, very hard to shell and pick out, and the shells are like rocks and the nuts themselves are strongly flavored and kind of a regional/aquired taste so not many at all are produced commercially. . I strongly doubt that any would find their way into this cat litter. Also I am sure that BB is aware that they are toxic.
I had a gift cert that I won at a cat show, to an upscale pet supply place, and since I don't do luxury I chose nut shell litter to use for my kittens, tho I think it was $17 for 25 lb. It seemed to work fine and no ill effects but as you said too pricey!
