Do you remember the Tylenol poisoning scare of the 80’s? I do, though it didn’t affect me much at the time. It affects everyone now though, because “safety sealing” pretty much stemmed from that. My mustard has a plastic wrap over the top, and also has a sealed plastic and aluminum cover under the top. Water bottles are the same way.

The other day we bought some ice cream. It came in a cardboard box with the ends folded over. There was one box that got leaned on a little bit, and the cardboard folded a little, and you could actually SEE the ice cream in there.

How did ice cream miss the safety sealing boat?

  1. Could it have something to do with shelf life? Seems like the inner seal on ketchup/mustard is just a way that it can sit in the store longer before it has to be tossed.
