Storage temperatures on case and product labels do not match


Best Answer , 29 April 2022 - 12:03 PM

You should be fine since the individual label is correct.

 

Also with it being a FDA product - they do say 41 and under.

 

You can also argue 41 or 40 will keep the product safe.

Our labels used to state that product much be kept below 41*F.  That was changed to 40*F a few months ago.

However, the person who orders our cases forgot to make the change on the cases, so they still say 41*F.

Can we use the rest of the cases or do they have to match?

 

*Edited*  These are 2 lb bags of imitation crab. It's pack 5/2#.  The individual (retail) packages are correct.  They case label is correct. 
It's just the printed box that says 41*F.  I THINK these are the last of the cases from an older shipment and new ones have been ordered.

Usually governing bodies will let you have a slight variance (like yours) as long as the printed instruction is still within the regulatory requirements

 

 

What would happen if your product was stored at 41 vs 40 or below?
