4. Describe how the packaging failed and the surrounding circumstances, including a description of the potential injury or exposure.

In a warehouse, a fibreboard case containing the product appeared wet. Upon investigation, the closures on the plastic jugs were loose. After randomly selecting cases to inspect, other jugs were found with loose caps and improperly sealed containers. To prevent leakage, staff opened all cases and screwed down all caps prior to the product being transferred to a an approved manufacturing facility for rework (proper torque closure and induction sealing). It is possible that a defect in the caps prevented proper closure and sealing. No actual exposure to humans, animals or the environment occurred.
