Refrigerated Shipping
Do these items require refrigerated shipping?
  Most products sold on FakeMeats.com are shelf-stable, meaning they do not require refrigeration (some require refrigeration after they have been opened). If you live in an extremely hot environment, we recommend having your order delivered to an address where someone can bring the package inside quickly, so it doesn't sit in your hot mail box or porch all day.

If you add a refrigerated or frozen item to your cart, only refrigerated shipping methods will be displayed in the shipping calculator. Refrigerated shipping methods can be costly, and are calculated based on order weight and your distance from our warehouse. If you are placing a large order, it may be more cost effective to place 1 order for refrigerated items and 1 order for shelf-stable items (shelf-stable items can use economy shipping methods).

My refrigerated delivery was delayed; is the product safe to eat?
  Refrigerated and frozen items are shipped using overnight shipping. For safety, the insulated shipping container is designed to sustain refrigerated temperatures for up to 4 days. Frozen items may arrive thawed. If your items arrive late, and are not cold, do not consume the products. Please contact the carrier to receive a refund.
