My kimchi did not arrive cold, the package is stinky and leaking! 

All shipments will be produced and sent after receiving the order. The ice pack may have melted after delivery, or it may not be cold anymore. The acceleration of the fermentation of kimchi can lead to the soup flowing or the package swelling. This is a natural phenomenon. Kimchi is safe to eat. All cases that occur due to failure to pick up within 3 hours of delivery are not eligible for a refund.


Use caution when opening kimchi jars.

Use caution when opening the jar over the sink and slow opening the lids with a paper towel as there pressure under the lid from active fermentation may build during transit from an active fermentation. Please open the lids slowly over the sink as the contents may spill out and overflow due to active fermentation.

We do our best to prevent breakage or leakage during shipping, but as kimchi’s active natural fermentation continues during shipping, there is a possibility of leakage. This fermentation is perfectly natural and safe to eat.

The lid of the kimchi jar is protruding and looks puffed. Is it safe to eat? 

Your kimchi continues to ferment during shipping. As the pressure builds through this natural fermentation process, it is possible the jar lid will swell and sometimes leak. This is perfectly natural due to the activity of lactobacillus production and gases, and it is safe to consume the kimchi.

My kimchi exploded out of the jar and fizzed like a bottle of Champagne after opening. Is this normal?

100% normal. Our kimchi is raw and unpasteurized which means that it will continue to ferment in the jar. Pressure builds inside the jar which causes contents to protrude out of the jar due to natural fermentation. Each batch and jar is unique as it is alive and not a heat-pasteurized product.
