In the United States, pet food does not need to be marked on the package, but many companies do this to inform consumers how long it takes to safely use pet food. However, only a pack of unopened pet food has passed the shelf life and does not mean that the food should be thrown away. In this case, you should look for unpleasant odors, discoloration or signs of pest or mold contamination.
However, if the food is 3 months later than the “best save” date, it should not be given to the pet. Even if the food has no unpleasant odor and there is no sign of any contamination, it may still lose its nutritional value due to the natural decomposition of preservatives and essential fats. Continued consumption of such foods can cause serious health problems.
Pet dry food does not need to be refrigerated. It should be stored in a dry, cool place at a temperature below 100°F (38°C). In theory, dry pet food can be stored in pet food containers indefinitely, provided that the container is placed in a dry, cool place, away from direct sunlight or insect infestation.
Pet food can be stored in plastic pet food containers, but it is recommended to keep it in the original bag and put it in a pet food container. The bag prevents fat build-up, the container prevents moisture and pests from entering the food, and keeps it fresh and nutritious for long periods of time.
However, it is highly recommended that you clean the pet food container daily and refill it to maintain hygiene and reduce the risk of contamination. In addition, unnecessary air exposure may cause the food to fall off before the expiration date, so it is best to store it in a properly sealed pet food container.
