Security Labels in the Food and Beverage Industry
Most restaurant operators and consumers alike are familiar with tamper security labels and seals. Everyday items such as over-the-counter drugs, food items, packaging materials, cleaning solutions and laundry products now often employ this method of security. Many manufacturers and providers of perishable products are now required to use these labels on their products. With the surge in popularity of third-party delivery, tamper-evident labels have taken on a more prominent role in the restaurant industry.
What is a tamper-evident label?
The most accurate definition of a tamper evident label is a secure seal that has one or more indicators or barriers to entry which, if breached or missing, can reasonably be expected to provide visible evidence to consumers or employees that tampering has occurred.
Government regulation states that the tamper indicator must be “distinctive by design.” This means the tamper-evident feature is designed from material not readily available to the public and it is therefore not easily duplicated. JW Products provides security labels that are made from a polyester film with a acrylic resin adhesive – allowing easy application and a distinct signal of tampering when removed.
