It had never really registered with I. I would guess the same is true with YOU. Have you ever noticed (or cared) that most of our beauty product bottles have no tamper-proof seals. Go check if you don’t believe I.
It suddenly struck me yesterday. Done another major shop at Walmart as we are wont to do. I happened to buy a bottle of hot sauce and another bottle of (cheap) aftershave because I like to have a few different bottles at the ready. Later that day ….
Trying to open the hot sauce bottle was a struggle. Two SEALS. Kind of overkill, but I won’t complain.
Aftershave bottle. NOTHING. Nada. Just twist and open.
Then I got thinking. In the crazy world we live in today. I could, unbeknownst, be splashing ANYTHING on my face. YIKES. Not funny. Kind of scary.
Of course I understand that adding tamper-resistance will increase the cost and thus the price. But, but, but …
I thought after the Tylenol tampering case in 1982 there were LAWS. Obviously NOT.
We need to think about this. SERIOUSLY.
Yes, I worried about writing this post. Hhmmmm!
But, I can’t be the first that noticed. Maybe the FIRST that CARED and was willing to write about it.
This is not gun control. This should be easy. I am going to start asking folks about this. I might send this post to my two (dear and trusted) U.S. Senators.
