Aspen Shavings - Good or Bad?

I was at the local pet store looking for a bigger setup for my '02 Anery (He's in a 10-gallon tank and wearing his rock hides like hats). I've gone to Aspen Shavings in the 20-Gallon long I use for my '02 Snow and we both love it. She loves to burrow and hide, and I like the way it seems to soak up smells.

Anyway, an employee that breeds corns and rat snakes at the pet store told me that Aspen Shavings are B-A-D because the snakes will aspirate dust and have respitory problems. I'm confused; I've seen Aspen Shaving highly recommended on this forum and elsewhere.

Should I just keep using Aspen Shavings and not worry about it?

Thank you all in advance,
