How to handle raw foods?

One of the biggest concerns when thinking about switching to a raw diet for your furry friend is having to deal with raw meat. This is where the whole bacteria and contamination thing comes into play, but we're here to tell you that if you follow a few precautions, you have absolutely nothing to worry about! At CRU we know that you want the best for your furry friend. That is why we have chosen to preserve our products in the most natural way possible: freezing. Our pet food is frozen, as this inactivates the microbes, bacteria and yeast present in raw meat and preserves it for a longer period of time; Still, we must be cautious when handling raw meat, just as we do when preparing our own meat at home for ourselves. Below we list our tips to keep in mind when handling raw foods:
  • If your furry friend's ration does not reach a package in one day, simply store the remaining amount in the refrigerator in an airtight bag or tupperware to avoid cross contamination.
  • Always use different utensils than those you use for yourself when serving your furry friend's raw food and avoid leaving it on the kitchen marble.
  • Wash your hands with warm or hot water and soap before and after handling raw foods.
  • Clean all surfaces that have come into contact with raw foods.
  • Store raw products at the bottom of the freezer to avoid any cross contamination in case of failure.
  • When you've finished a package, rinse it with water and make sure to recycle it in the yellow bin.
Raw foods should be defrosted in the refrigerator to ensure progressive defrosting.
