Inferior safety cap poses potential hazard IMO !
July 14, 2018
The formula is great. The safety seal is defective. The similac I have bought from stores , such as Target , did not have any problems with plastic filaments flaking off after I twist off the cap when breaking the safety seal.
I ordered 16 boxes from this amazon site and as you can see from the picture - there are two little white plastic filaments (often times 3-5)
This is very annoying because the seal is difficult to twist ( too much friction and it almost gets stuck ) and I constantly have to worry about plastic pieces falling into the milk as I open it and put a nipple on top.
I’ve had to experiment with different speeds and force to twist the cap in order to figure out a way to get the least amount of plastic pieces falling off the safety ring or cap.
It’s annoying to explain this to family members who want to feed the newborn .
This could be detrimental for a newborn.
I’m starting. To realize it is better to buy similar from a brick and mortar store .
Or just giving everyone a heads up that there is something wrong with the seal and god forbid your newborn swallows plastic .
