*Important note regarding original packaging and product receipts
We highly recommend keeping the original Sahlen's packaging and purchase receipt until all product is consumed. Replacements cannot be guaranteed without these items.
Replacing Sahlen's products If you purchase spoiled, damaged or otherwise compromised Sahlen's products, we are happy to provide a coupon to replace the flawed items whenever possible.
For a replacement coupon, please provide:
- All unconsumed product (min. 50 percent of purchased product) in the original packaging
- The original receipt
- A written description of the product issue
- A photo of the product
Without these items, we cannot guarantee a replacement coupon.
All replacement coupons will be sent via U.S. postal mail. We will not provide replacement coupons for products consumed by the customer or products that reach sell-by or expiration dates following purchase.
*Guidelines for hot dog and deli meat storage
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration recommends the following guidelines for the safe consumption and storage of hot dogs and deli meats:
- Keep product refrigerated at 40° F (4° C) or frozen at 0° F (-18° C) at all times
- Do not purchase or use products at or past the sell-by or expiration date
- Keep product wrapped in original packaging until use
An open package of hot dogs can be safely refrigerated for 1 week or frozen (in freezer wrap) for 1 to 2 months. An unopened package of hot dogs can be refrigerated or frozen (in freezer wrap) until its expiration date.
An open package of deli meat can be safely refrigerated for 3 to 5 days or frozen (in freezer wrap) for 1 to 2 months. An unopened package of deli meat can be refrigerated or frozen (in freezer wrap) until its expiration date.
For a complete list or FDA refrigeration and freezer recommendations, visit the administration website.
Please note that freezing can cause hot dogs to become salty, shriveled or tough, depending on the type of packaging used. An unopened 1-pound bag of Sahlen’s Hot Dogs is ideal for freezing. Sahlen's will not issue replacement coupons for improper freezing of hot dogs.
We do add water to hot dogs as that is the formulation for all hot dogs. This is especially important when they freeze them and the crystals appear and the quality is reduced
