Make Sure Product Tampering Doesn’t Happen to You
The year was 1982. One of the most memorable events was a product tampering case involving the deaths of seven people in the Chicago area between September 29th and October 1st, all as a result of cyanide poisoning after having taken Tylenol. Remember it? The manufacturers of Tylenol weren’t at fault, yet they suffered great financial hardship. In the months following the 1982 incident, the Food and Drug Administration in Washington counted 270 incidents of suspected product or package tampering that were reported around the country.
We live with the Tylenol legacy even to this day; just visit any local supermarket or pharmacy. You’ll find tamper-proof packaging and safety seals on even the most innocuous items-all resulting from the Tylenol incident. Unfortunately, product tampering is not limited to Chicago or Tylenol. Some cases are more severe than others, and often result in grave illness or death.
As a manufacturer, product tampering may be your number one fear, leaving you with the following questions:
- How can I prevent product tampering?
- Can I be assured that my product won’t become the tool of some psychopath or terrorist out to kill innocent people and destroy my company name?
- How can I best protect the health and well-being of my clients and my firm?
- If tampering occurs, can I prove where the tampering took place and how?
- How will I prove due diligence in protecting my product from tampering?
