Down Bag Stink?

I recently bought a TNF Superlight (0 F) down sleeping bag, and used it for 3 nights at Camp Muir. When I got home, I couldn't get the funky smell out of it. I've used TNF bags before, but this is my 1st down bag. Has anyone ever experienced anything like this? If so, how do you get the smell out? It smells like body odor. My diet wasn't any different than any other trip, and I didn't sweat any more than normal.

Thanks in advance,

Steve

You should just be able to wash it-- no?
