Packaging: This item is packed inside a mylar bag and then that bag is put inside a 5-gallon pail. If your pail arrives “sucked in,” this can be normal due to changes in elevation during transit. If this happens to your bucket simple open the seal to the lid to “reinflate” the pail, then put the lid back on. This will NOT shorten the shelf life of the product as it doesn’t affect the mylar bag and will still keep rodents out.
Shelf life estimates are based on industry studies from sources deemed reputable. Since Rainy Day Foods has no control over individual storage practices, they must disclaim any liability or warranty for particular results.
