With recent batches of gummy vitamins that went to production, we stopped applying the outer plastic seal on the bottles. Not only is it not required, but it seemed wasteful to us since it does not bring value to the security of the product nor is it eco-friendly. We found that, on occasion, these seals would come loose or break off in transit which would only confuse people and cause concern. We felt, for these reasons, it was best to not use them anymore.
It is the inner safety seal that needs to be completely intact to ensure the product has not been tampered with.
