    What are your temps cool and hot end? How are you measuring them?

    How are you presenting the food? Is it warm and fully thawed?

    Which expo? VHS?
    Was it sold as feeding? If so leave it be for a week and try again after checking your husbandry.
    If it hasn't fed previously and you knew then why buy it?
