Why do we have tamper proof seals on all items for sale that we put in your mouth?

because of the Tylenol killer back in the 80's. 
Excellent!  But do you know what poison the killer used?
Cyanide. And a stewardess (victim) who lived in Sandburg Village bought a bottle at my Walgreens at the corner of North and Wells.

Congrats to Both of You!

I remember living through that and all the panic.  I also remember thinking that Tylenol would surely go out of business and seeing it become the example for all the safety seals that we see today.  Every time I open a bottle with a safety wrap or I see that message about not using a product if the seal is tampered with, I can't help but wonder if the younger ones today know when and why it all started.

More Old People Trivia tomorrow!!!
