It is hard to forget the classic product tampering case that resulted in the deaths of 7 people in Chicago between 12 September and 1 October 1982. Deaths were caused by cyanide poisoning that followed after people took Tylenol. The Tylenol manufacturers were certainly not to blame. However, the amount of financial damage that they suffered as a result of the incident was unbelievable. For several months after the incident, the Washington Food and Drug Administration had 270 incidents where product tampering or package tampering was involved.

Even after so many years this incident still resonates with us. The incident resulted in a packaging and safety precaution revolution. Today, even the most unimportant and seemingly ordinary products come in tamper-proof packaging and tight safety seals. However, product tampering is spread across the board in all areas of business, being more represented in some than in others. In severe cases, product-tampering has been known to directly cause permanent health debilitations, severe illness, or even death.

Manufacturers need to deal with product tampering as the number one priority. The things to consider include:

  • Ways of curbing product tampering
  • Ways of protecting the product from getting into the hands of criminals who might use it to inflict harm on other people, leading to the loss of company name’s reputation
