SHELF LIFE: Flint River Ranch pet food has a shelf life of about 6 months, whether opened or not; however, each bag has a "Best Used By" date on it, and, if stored properly, the food can be used until that date, which is often longer than 6 months. For best results, the food should be stored in a cool, dry place.
STORAGE: We recommend keeping the food in the bag that it is shipped in; this ensures that no contamination will occur from another container that is not cleaned regularly or thoroughly. Also, storage in air-tight containers can cause the food to mold. After the bag is opened, the open end should be rolled up and held closed by a clip or some other means to help keep insects and other pests out. Refrigeration is not necessary, but may extend the shelf life, particularly if your situation is borderline: high humidity, with several months storage before the food is eaten.
MILDEW SPOILAGE: Natural pet foods attract moisture quickly, which can turn into mildew spoilage overnight in the summer weather and high humidity areas. Store all pet food in a dry, cool place.
INFESTATION: MOTHS — WORMS — INSECTS: The heat in manufacturing destroys any potential insect eggs that might be left after the cleaning process. If the food is not properly stored after purchase or if the bag is left open, it will attract all types of ants, flying bugs, and insects that lay eggs in the rich food. In an extremely short time, these eggs turn into worms and moths. This problem appears in all food and pet food; however, it is more frequent in natural pet foods like Flint River Ranch. All pet food must be stored in a dry, cool place and sealed to reduce the chance of insect infestation.
