Brisky Pet Products has always been dedicated to the safety of your pet. Recently there has been concerns over food saftey, storage, expiration dates, lot numbers, and shelf life of food purchased around the country for exotic and other pets. Brisky Pet Products prides itself in only using American grown grains and forage products in our feed.
In a continuing effort to improve our service, we are including this letter with your order to make you aware of some safe food handling requirements.
Food should be kept in a cool dry place. Cool (under 72°F or 22°C) and a relative humidity of between 25% and 50%. With these requirements met your food should last up to 3 months from date of purchase.
Refrigeration seems like a great idea- but moisture driven into the food by the removal and replacement in the refrigerator can lead to food breakdown and molding. If refrigeration is used correctly (only take out of the refrigerator what is need for that days meals) you can expect the same shelf life as the above storage method (cool dry place)
Freezing is a great way to extend the shelf life of your Brisky Diet. Not only does it hamper food break down and mold growth, it also helps slow the natural disintegration of vitamins and nutrients. There is a catch- the food must not be constantly exposed to the freeze thaw cycle. Our recommendation is to take a week or two worth of food out of the freezer at a time. This can be stored in the refrigerator or in a cool dry place. Using this method, Brisky Diets should last 6 to 9 months from date of purchase.
It is not recommended that Brisky Diets be used after 12 months. Although not dangerous, the nutritional value after 12 months deteriorates very rapidly.
