Shipping Information

FoodShed Exchange shipping means your order arrives in perfect condition.

To ensure that your product arrives at its destination in wholesome condition, it’s shipped using FoodShed Exchange packaging utilizing insulated liners, ice packs, and dry ice all contained by heavy-duty boxes. All meats are individually shrink-wrapped, then flash frozen to lock in all the natural juices and flavor. The meats are packed in a reusable insulated container with enough dry ice to ensure safe delivery. Finally, the container is placed in a heavy-duty corrugated box for an additional layer of protection. It’s the best way to ensure that every product is delivered in wholesome condition.

Dry Ice Safety Guidelines

* Use gloves, towels, or pot holders to move dry ice.  The temperature of dry ice is -109 F (-79 C), cold enough to freeze skin cells and cause an injury similar to a burn.  Always handle dry ice with protective gloves or a towel.

* Use a ventilated location.  Dry ice gives off CO2 which may cause difficulty breathing or suffocation.  If dry ice has been in a closed vehicle or room, open the doors and windows before entering.  Leave the area immediately if you have any difficulty breathing.  In a vehicle, transport dry ice in the trunk or with the windows down to provide adequate ventilation.

* Store dry ice in an insulated container but not one that is air tight.  As dry ice sublimates from a solid to CO2 (carbon dioxide) gas, it will cause an air tight container to expand and possibly explode.

* Children should be supervised by an adult when using dry ice!
