    Unsealed tubs..?


    My wife's friend got 2 tubs of protein powder from BB.com that was unseald?! She's getting 2 new ones but said she give me the unsealed ones if I want them. Will it be safe to use them or should I not take them? They look the same as always but I'm not sure...

    What do you guys think? Have this ever happened to any of you?

    I probably wouldn't. There was no shrink wrap or inner seal?

    Are the seals stuck to the underside of the lid?

    Check the underside of the lid when you get the chance. Sometimes the seal comes loose when you open it for the first time and gets stuck there.

    This has happened frequently to me, but either way if there was no shrink wrapped seal then that's probably a bad sign since even if the seal got stuck in the lid it could have been stuck there from someone else opening it.

    I've had a ton of protein come without a plastic seal on the top. I thought that some brands just come like that. Others the inner seal drys out and sticks to cap when you open it. Wouldn't ship it back or ask for a replacement for that, wouldn't think I would get it. Retailer would most likely think you're just trying to get free stuff. If I found a foreign object in my protein, that would be a different story.

    Hahaha! So I got the tubs from my wife's friend today, the plastic seal was on but the paper seal was stuck in the lid, lol! She just started to train and this was the first time she ordered protein so when she couldn't find the paper seal she freaked out, lol!

    I'm not complaining, I got 7lb protein for free and she have new ones on the way

    Thanks guys for helping out!
