My wife bought a bottle of flax seed oil that was not refrigerated. On the bottle it says to refrigerate after opening. I was under impression that flax seed oil has to be always refrigerated. Should I have her take it back?

Uhm yeah man. I think it ALWAYS needs to be refrigerated. Take it back and go to a different store

If it's been properly sealed, it doesn't need to be refrigerated, as with just about any other food. Just make sure you refrigerate it once you've opened it and you'll be fine.

and after opening it can be kept for up to 3 months.
