- Products approved for return should be packed with reasonable care and should be in the unit of measure ordered. Worn, out-of-date or used items are not eligible for return.
- You will be responsible for the freight cost to return items. The return service label should be affixed to the outside of the shipment container with the RA number noted on the label. Your RA number is valid for 30 days, and returned items must be received within 30 days of the RA creation date.

What is the shelf life on products?
