Reminder about Storage and Handling of Dried Fruits, Fruit/Nut Trail Mix, Grains and Grain Products

FDD has received several complaints recently about dried fruit and grain products that became infested in storage. In each instance, it was determined that the product was in storage for an excessive amount of time under less than recommended storage conditions. Under these circumstances, the vendor has no contractual responsibility for the product. Therefore, it is imperative that dried fruit and grain products are distributed to the end user as soon as possible after receipt from the vendor to avoid problems with infestation.
