How to handle and dispose of dry iceUpdated a month ago

CAUTION: Dry Ice Can Burn You 

Dry ice (aka frozen carbon dioxide) is used to keep your frozen order frozen in transit. However, please be careful. Do NOT touch dry ice with bare hands because contact could cause severe cold burns and frostbite. Instead, use thick gloves or tongs to remove the ice and let it evaporate outside or in a well-ventilated area. Keep it away from children and pets. Do not put dry ice in tightly closed containers or down a drain. 

If you do not see any dry ice remaining, then it has evaporated, but that doesn't necessarily mean your shipment is unsafe. Check if your seafood is still cold to the touch, and contact us if you feel that your shipment did not arrive in good condition.
