About This Item

These barrels come with two access points to fill or retrieve water. Made with non-toxic, food-grade plastic and BPA free, this barrel comes in a blue color which restricts UV rays and helps control the growth of algae and bacteria.

Sealed Shelf Life
Opened Shelf Life
*Shelf life based on optimal storage conditions.
To reach the maximum shelf life, your Nutristore™ products should be stored in an environment with temperatures ranging between 55°-70° F. Ideal storing conditions are in a cool, dark, dry environment where the product will be protected from moisture, oxygen, and sunlight. Excellent storing locations are in (but not limited to) closets, under beds and in basements. All stated shelf life is based on proper storage of your Nutristore™ products.
Storing your Nutristore™ products in a location with extreme temperatures, high humidity or an area where oxygen, sunlight and/or moisture may contact your product, will decrease the shelf life. After opening a can to consume, you should continue to store the product in optimal conditions with the white plastic lid secured. Limit the amount of time you allow your Nutristore™ foods to be exposed to air and light, doing so will help maximize the opened can shelf life.

The order arrived promptly, in good condition and the barrels are of the highest quality, safest to use for water storage and are made in the USA.
I would order again from Foodstorage.com, when the time comes. I highly recommend them to anyone seeking preparedness products, including long-term food storage. (Posted on 5/13/16)
