Not all my freeze-dried food are in #10 cans... I have about 200 pouches of freeze-dried tuck away in plastic buckets in a very good temperature controlled location. My buckets are simple heavy-grade plastic, actually, they use to hold 35 lbs of cat litter, so they're strong, stack well and got a good lid. I figure it was a good secondary use for them... But, I recently found a really good deal locally on Food Grade buckets and I was wondering... Question: Is there any reason that these buckets need to be food grade? Any reason I should change them? Note: Yes, I know I could probably find answers on the internet but I would rather hear and take advice from the folks on the forum that I have learned to trust rather than some yahoo out in the ether.
