Mazuri Product Warranty Statement
The stability of nutrients in Mazuri® products is dependent on proper storage conditions. We recommend storing product in a cool (75°F/24°C or cooler), dry (< 50% relative humidity) place. Storage at higher temperatures and humidity levels will reduce nutrient concentrations and will affect our product warranty.
Mazuri® diets (e.g., primate, guinea pig, fish diets), include a form of vitamin C that is stable for over 1 year at appropriate storage conditions.
Production and expiration information for Mazuri® diets can vary based on product and manufacturing location. Please refer to the chart below for additional information.
