When it comes to sanitization our antlers, we take this very seriously. Since antlers are naturally shed in the wild, then picked by locals or antler collectors, they could potentially be contaminated with bacteria or virus such as Salmonella, Norovirus (Norwalk Virus), Campylobacter, E. coli, Listeria and Clostridium perfringens.
To minimize the contamination risk, we sanitize EACH of our antlers using Ozone (O3) sanitation method and immediately seal it after sanitization. From wild or farm to your furry friend, we know the risk of antler product being exposure to bacteria, we can’t afford to take the chance. Ozone sanitization is an FDA approved (FDA Federal Register Vol. 66 No.123) sanitization method, adopted by food processing and pharmaceutical industries. Major cities such as Los Angeles, Dallas, and Las Vegas currently use ozone to purify their water supply. See our sanitization report.
We choose ozone because of its ability to disinfect our antlers without adding other chemicals. This way, we can ensure our antlers are sanitized and no bleaching chemical is ever used.
Our antlers are sealed immediately after sanitization to prevent any contamination due to transportation or display. The Ozone Sanitized” label and seal packaging represent our commitment to sanitizing our products for maximum safety!
