Is Carefresh bedding with baking soda safe for guinea pigs?

I have used bedding with baking soda and without and didn't notice much difference. Even if it's not harmful, I don't really believe it controls odors much better, and Carefresh is good enough at odor control (in my experience) that if it smells, it's probably time for a change, and baking soda just masks it.

We have generally advised against using bedding containing baking soda. They are close to the ground, can dust it up/inhale it.
