General Return Policy
El Pinto Foods, LLC does not use preservatives or additives in the manufacuturing process of our food products. Therefore, our food products have a shorter shelf-life once opened than most products produced by our competitors. In general our products will remain fresh for 5-7 days if properly refrigerated. The benefit is a better, healthier and all natural product for our consumers.

All sales final. No refunds. No returns.
