Controlled Labs, Orange OxiMega Fish Oil, Citrus Flavor, 120 Softgels5 Reviews
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.
The Shipping Weight includes the product, protective packaging material and the actual shipping box. In addition, the Shipping Weight may be adjusted for the Dimensional Weight (e.g. length, width & height) of a package. It is important to note that certain types of products (e.g. glass containers, liquids, fragile, refrigerated or ice packed) will often require protective packaging material. As such, these products will reflect a higher Shipping Weight compared to the unprotected product.

iHerb Customer Reviews
Someone already mentioned that there's no sign of citrus flavor. The capsules doesn't smell or taste anything like lemon or orange at all, and the actual fish oil has a mild fishy taste (I actually chewed one capsule). It doesn't taste like rancid, spoiled or anything like that, though. I think that the fishy taste could have been stronger but I was initially hoping this wouldn't taste like fish at all. So it's not as bad as it could have been. One capsule was enough to give me fishy burps for 30 minutes or so, but I'm quite prone to get fishy burps from fish oils anyway. The total amount of EPA and DHA per serving is 60% which is very nice. This fish oil contains 28.7 ppb (28.7 ng/g) of PCBs (Lot # 2013 0420-1). So you'll get 57.4 ng/g PCBs per serving (2 softgels). That's pretty high PCB content as one serving covers 64% of the upper limit for California (90 ng/g per day). However, the concentration of other heavy metals/toxins is very low: equal or less than 0.01 ppm (ug/g). That's well below California Proposition 65 upper limits. You can find these test results straight from Controlled Labs homepage, or from Bodybuilding forum (use Google to find the thread). It's great to see that Controlled Labs publishes this information so openly. This shouldn't be something that makes one stand out of the crowd, however. It should be a common practise for every fish oil producer. Anyways, I'll finish the whole bottle that I ordered but I guess I'll try another brand next time because I really don't care about the fishy taste :)
Very good value.
