    Packaging Information

    All orders are packed in durable FDA approved shipping coolers. These coolers are both reusable and recyclable. Please reuse and enjoy your cooler. If you must dispose of the cooler please visit the EPS Packaging drop off location. For additional recycling information or to find an EPS Packaging drop off location, visit the EPS Packaging website at epspackaging.org.

    The product is individually vacuum sealed to remain fresh in your freezer for up to six months. Your order will be packed with dry ice and/or gel packs to ensure that it arrives in optimal condition. It is normal for the dry ice to have dissipated during shipping. Use protective gloves to handle remaining dry ice, or allow it to dissipate on its own. Avoid contact with bare skin. Gel packs are re-usable and are food grade conforming to FDA regulation 176.170, non-toxic, non hazardous and biodegradable.

    Your products should be frozen or cool to the touch at time of arrival. Place them into the freezer or refrigerator immediately upon receipt.

    The Naked Pig Meat Co. is not responsible for damage to products if recipient is not available to accept the shipment at time of delivery. All products are shipped using Standard Shipping methods. Damage to the products due to an incorrect or incomplete address voids our guarantee.

    Defrosting Instructions
    The best way to defrost pork is in its wrapping. Refrigerator Thawing: Place the meat on a dish and set on the bottom shelf. Allow 24 hours per 5 pounds of meat. Cold Water Thawing: The food must be in a leak-proof package or plastic bag. The bag should be submerged in cold tap water, changing the water every 30 minutes so it continues to thaw. If thawed completely, the food must be cooked immediately.


    Cooking Temperatures
    USDA recommends cooking all whole cuts of meat to 145 °F as measured with a food thermometer placed in the thickest part of the meat, then allowing the meat to rest for three minutes before carving or consuming. This does not apply to ground meats, which should be cooked to 160 °F and do not require a rest time. Overcooking whole cuts will result in dry, tough meat!
