    Hi all,

    Irma's heading our way, and I wanted to verify how long prozinc is good without refrigeration. In the event of a power outage, I'd be able to keep it cold for a few days, but it might be longer. Does anyone know how long it will stay good at room temp?

    I have not seen anything 'official', but I found a couple of places that said it is okay if left out at a reasonable room temperature for up to a day.

    I wish you the best. I hope you will evacuate if that is what is being recommended for your area. Better safe than sorry!

    Please stay safe! As far as I've ever been able to find, there isn't a definitive answer to that. It depends on what "room temperature" ends up being, and even then there isn't a calculation. When power is restored, check for little floaties in the insulin. If you see floaters, it's gone bad. If it looks funny, it's gone bad. The only other way to know is to try it and see if the effect has changed.

    And more than anything, please be careful. Sending prayers to you and everyone there! :bighug:

    Thanks everyone. Sorry, I didn't get back sooner. All is well - we lost power a few days, but everyone was safe. Thanks again for your help!

    Glad to hear!

    I found out about this product on this forum. I ordered it the other day just in case of any future power outages. Seems like a worth while investment.

    Thank you for posting this link. Have a hurricane headed for me now. I am so happy that you had no damage. Going with power really sucks though!
