Activator™ packages will sometimes swell slightly or moderately during shipping or storage. This is not an indication of deterioration if the package is less than 6 months old and has been properly handled. This is due to trace amounts of nutrients, still available at the time of packaging, causing small amounts of culture activity and CO2 production. Some strains are more prone to this than others.
