Fortunately, I did call Augason Farms (1-800-878-0099) and left a message.
They responded the next business day at an inappropriate time for me to talk, but the rep agreed to call back at a specific time. AND HE DID! A half-hour later than stated, but WOW! How many companies nowadays actually call the customer back, not only once, but TWICE to help them? Thank you!!!!!!!
Oh and about that crushed plastic tub. It was packaged in the warehouse undamaged according to Ethan (sorry if I remembered your name wrong, hon). What happened to the plastic? Altitude change compression. The air seal was so darn good the container lost in the battle over physics. The super low air pressure inside the container remained constant, but the the outside pressure increased when it traveled from the majestic high Rockies to our lovely but much lower Appalachians. This will usually result in the container caving in. Further note (my add after research, not the reps words) a container may compress enough to pop the seal under the red lid. The container may at that point pop back out as the internal air pressure equalizes with the outside. What we, the customers will see is a container that looks like the lid was not put on completely (ie: raised somewhere).
And what about the products? Well, I had intended this order to be sampled immediately as crunchy snacks now and not stored. So I, a very strong pioneer woman, fought the monster sealed red lid and after ten minutes opened the offensive round container. Ten minutes was not an exaggeration, and sweet Ethan patiently chatted with me while I destroyed the lid. He was not going to hang up on me until he was sure I was satisfied. Bless the poor man's heart, I think I used some unladylike language, but I got my prizes. Every last one of the vacuum-sealed Mylar bags were intact and the vacuum sealing process had protected them from damage (powderizing) inside the bucket. A few days have passed since my war with the red lid and so I have opened several more bags. NONE of them had anything more than one single tablespoon of powder for the whole huge bag. The rest of the bag was full of delicious crunchy fruit snacks. Yummy! Amazing since freeze-dried fruits powder easily.
Oh. I also ordered the freeze-dried veggies. That container came in with the other lid issue mentioned. One side popped its seal up, but the rubber grommet (necessary to get a good air and water barrier) was not damaged . Sorry, forgot to take a pic of that. But I am not in the least upset. The Mylar bags were sealed perfectly and the product was in awesome condition.
If longer term storage is necessary and you must have that tertiary protection (primary was freeze-drying process, secondary was vacuum-sealed air-impermeable Mylar bags) but the bucket seal has broken, then all you need to do is not kill the red lid and drop in one of those anti-air packets (specifically oxygen absorbers) and stomp the evil red lid back in place. And stomp it really good. That will give you those 20-25 years of decent food storage you expect.
BTW: I recommend you buy that handy lid tool they also sell. Going to war with the red lid using only vise grips was NOT fun.
I would have been one happy camper if they would have gave me extra blueberries, and peaches... In stead of of the strawberries
Has a 'packaged' date and its 25 year 'use by' date printed on the container for reference and contains two pouches of each fruit.
There is a lot of fruit in each pouch, but not so much that two people can't go through it all when using it regularly before it 'gets gross'.
So far, I've only eaten the strawberries, but they were excellent.
Also included in the pail is a little booklet describing each fruit type within it and their reconstitution instructions.
Each pouch also has a 'packaged' and 'use by' date printed on it.
The lid is very difficult to remove; I recommend purchasing a lid removal tool if you don't already have one.
Every bag is plain and marked only with a little square sticker identifying its contents, so finding a specific pouch can be a pain.
