Scroll down for a list of our commonly asked questions
Q: I DON’T SEE AN EXPIRATION DATE ON MY MIGHTY SPARK PRODUCT, IS IT STILL GOOD?
A: Mighty spark relies on its grocery partners to date sticker the products when they are displayed for purchase. In the event a sticker is not present and/or you have a question regarding the shelf life of a product, please contact the store directly.
Q: CAN I REFREEZE YOUR PRODUCTS?
A: Yes, absolutely! The USDA advises that it is safe to refreeze meat. And thanks to our packing methods, the flavor, texture, and quality of your product will not be affected.
Q: ARE MIGHTY SPARK PRODUCTS GLUTEN FREE?
A: Many of our products are made without wheat. However, because they currently are manufactured in facilities that also handle wheat and other allergens, we currently cannot claim our products are “gluten free.” We hope to have options available to our gluten-free friends in the near future, and are definitely working towards this goal. If you have any questions or concerns about gluten in our products, please reach out to us directly.
Q: ARE YOUR CATTLE GRASS-FED?
A: Our meat is derived from cattle that are not exclusively grass-fed. Grass-fed certification for our beef products is something we’re considering moooving to as we grow and expand our offerings.
Q: HOW MUCH WOOD COULD A WOOD CHUCK CHUCK, IF A WOOD CHUCK COULD CHUCK WOOD?
A: Following the defunding of the government’s program to answer this and other questions pertaining to riddles, we’ve taken it upon ourselves to find out. Simulations using prairie dogs and beavers have provided mixed and confusing data. Several back injuries and chiropractic bills have led us to conclude that the answer is 3.65 logs with a 4” diameter and 16” length. This is an average based on varying moisture content within the logs.
Q: ARE MIGHTY SPARK PRODUCTS FREE OF ANTIBIOTICS?
A: We currently work with farmers who wisely provide antibiotic treatment to their animals when they get sick, just as you and I do with our pets or livestock. No one wants to see an animal suffer, so veterinarians do occasionally deliver antibiotics to our animals. The USDA conducts a monitoring program to ensure the antibiotics are effectively eliminated from animal’s systems at processing and that no unsafe residues are detected in finished products. Animal welfare is important, so if you have additional questions or concerns please reach out to us directly.
Q: WHERE DO YOU SOURCE YOUR MEAT?
A: Mighty Spark has scoured the land and thoughtfully chosen a handful of mighty fine suppliers. We are working on sharing the stories of our partners, but we proudly work with farmers in the United States- most commonly in our Midwest backyard.
Q: ARE MIGHTY SPARK PRODUCTS NITRATE FREE?
A: Several of our products do not contain nitrates and we are in the process of making all our products nitrate-free. Stay tuned, and if you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to us directly.
Q: IS IT POSSIBLE TO EAT TOO MUCH MIGHTY SPARK?
Q: DO I COOK MIGHTY SPARK FROM FROZEN OR THAWED?
A: Mighty spark products are best when they are fully thawed before cooking – we recommend thawing them in the refrigerator. Once fully thawed, heat to an internal temperature of 165° F and enjoy! Detailed cooking instructions can be found on the inside of our packaging.
Q: WHAT IS BITE BACK AND HOW IS IT HELPING KIDS?
A: Mighty spark is committed to fighting childhood hunger. We are on a crusade to help feed hungry kids through our new Bite Back initiative. For every Mighty spark product purchased, we donate one meal to a child in need.
Q: WHY CAN’T I FIND ONE OF YOUR MIGHTY SPARK PRODUCTS?
A: Being the small company that Mighty spark is, we have the flexibility to adapt and change quickly, resulting in product improvements and evolutions. Sometimes we decide to (figuratively) shelve previous products in order to make room for the New Kids on the Block or Beyoncé (or insert your favorite musical preference here). If you can’t find a favorite product, take solace in knowing that you are a unique individual who has a different taste for life unlike most others. You are a carnivorous unicorn.
Q: WHAT DID THE BORED COW SAY WHEN SHE GOT UP IN THE MORNING?
A: “It’s just an udder day.” While a bored cow may think that way, we at Mighty spark believe every day is a special day. Our renegade chefs are constantly cooking up new ideas, innovating current products, or taste-testing the competition. Why? Because our goal is to create the best meats possible. We obsess over every detail until we arrive at what we believe was just that. The best. No compromises.
Q: HOW DO I GET MIGHTY SPARK AT MY LOCAL RETAILER?
A: If you don’t see your favorite Mighty spark flavor at your local grocery store, talk to the meat manager and ask them to order it. If they carry Mighty spark, it can easily be added to their next order. Remember: customers and their requests exert the strongest infulence over what a store carries.
