Each shipment is packed with just enough dry ice to disappear before you open your package; but if you open your package to find pieces of dry ice still remaining, dont touch the dry ice. Leave it in the box and put the box outside or in a garage so that the dry ice can naturally dissipate. Ensure that children or pets will not be able to access the box.

Veestro will not be held liable for any damage caused by improper handling of dry ice material.
