The food and beverage and pharmaceutical industries are more vigilant than ever when it comes to product safety. Protecting the consumer is a manufacturer's top priority, which is why so many companies rely on tamper evident and tamper resistant packaging. These two terms are not the same, however. So let's take a look at how they differ.
Both of these security labels are highly important when it comes to consumer safety. A 2006 report published by the Institute of Medicine (IOM) revealed that packaging and labeling issues were the cause of one-third of all medication errors and led to about 30% of fatalities from medication errors.
Experts do debate the superiority of these security labeling methods, but it does seem like tamper evident packaging has a leg up on tamper resistant packaging. Tamper resistant seals may be more difficult to break, but they are not fool-proof, and oftentimes, they don't leave any obvious trace of tampering.
