Storage of Flint River Ranch pet foods
Flint River Ranch pet food has a shelf life of about 6 months when stored in a cool, dry environment, whether opened or not. 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. The food will spoil more quickly if in a damp place, or where readily infested by moths, worms, or insects, and may last longer in a very cool and dry environment. Refrigeration is not necessary, but it's not a bad idea, particularly if your situation is borderline - high humidity, with several months storage before the food is used up.
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. Food not properly stored after purchase, or when the bag is left open 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.
