Dr. Higa’s Original™ EM-1 Microbial Inoculant Past Date Retail

You learn something new every day. Today we learned that retailers shouldn’t order their microbial inoculants in April, after the spring rush, or they wind up the following winter holding fourteen cases of product with an unappealing expiration date. The good news is, microbial products don’t just all of a sudden “go bad” or die — they lose potency slowly and gradually, especially when properly stored (as, of course, ours is). Selling “expired” EM-1 at full price would offend our conscience, but we think it’s a wicked bargain at 30% off of its retail price. Microbes love thrift, too.
