Have your Horse products been tampered with?

Blue Springs MO ó As a horse owner you should be able to have assurance that the products you are buying for your horses are safe and have not been tampered with. Tamper-evident design is perhaps most visible in the area of product packaging, where it can be vital to know that the product has not been altered since it left the manufacturer.

Cans of baby-food were among the first high-profile tamper cases, where manufacturers were blackmailed by persons claiming to have added poisons to baby-food, and replaced them on supermarket shelves. Then there was the Tylenol Crisis of 1982 that involved over-the-counter medications. The amount of stock which needed to be destroyed (because it was impossible to tell if a given item had been tampered with) and the threat of public fear meant that tamper-evident design principles had the potential to save a lot of money and bring security to the consumer.

Packaging that tears open raggedly or otherwise cannot be resealed is sometimes used to help indicate tampering. End-users need to be educated to watch for signs of tampering.

Durvet is converting their equine wormer packaging to a new safety seal pak that will be tamper-evident! This new safety seal pak will not only bring security to the consumer but work as a theft deterrent for the retailer! Be sure to ask for Durvet equine wormers at your favorite feed, farm and tack stores!

Durvet brings you a better product at a better price! Watch your retailerís shelf for several new equine products from Durvet in 2009! http://www.Durvet.com
