Declaration of extended expiry date

Aarke Carbonator 3 PET and Small PET Bottles 

Due to the extraordinary circumstances of world trade and logistics in the aftermath of Covid 19 Pandemic, the expiry dates of certain production batches of Aarke Carbonator 3 PET and Small PET Bottles are extended by 12 months. The affected production batches have the following expiry date printed on the back of the Aarke Carbonator 3 PET Bottle and Small Aarke PET Bottle and must have been purchased on July 1 2022 or later.

Criteria for expiry date extension:

  • The Aarke PET Bottle has an expiry date between [06/2023] and [01/2026]
  • The date of purchase was July 1 2022 or later

Detailed information:

Aarke PET bottles for the Carbonator 3 are marked with an expiry date for the purpose of ensuring a safe and reliable function. Over the cause of its service life the PET bottle is exposed to repeated pressure cycles as well as environmental effects from being in a domestic kitchen environment, and will eventually require replacement. The expiry date is determined by a number of factors, including an estimated time for transport and storage. The aftermath of the Covid-19 pandemic has led to some of Aarke's products, including some Aarke Carbonator 3 PET Bottles and Small PET Bottles, remaining in storage for a longer time than intended. 

This means that the expiry date for the above-mentioned applicable production batches, purchased after July 1st 2022, can be used for 12 more months after the expiry date printed on the PET Bottles. For example: if an Aarke PET Bottle or a Carbonator 3 have been purchased in February 2023 and the bottle has an expiry date of  01/2024, the bottle is good to use until 01/2025. 

Please note: always replace your Aarke PET Bottle if it is deformed, cracked or has been exposed to heat - no matter what expiry date it has.
