Checking Contents of Food Storage Buckets

by Luna

If I order food storage kits and open the buckets when my shipment arrives to check if its contents are correct and to make sure the bags are sealed, will it still retain its 25-year self life once I open the bucket?

RESPONSE:

You can take the lid off and look, but if you happen to puncture the Mylar bag in any way or open it, you will have to seal it up again, and include new oxygen absorbers to guarantee a 25-year shelf life.
