ANSWER: The 20B white pails are fine for food contact and many customers use them as you describe. The pails are not made of freezer grade resin.

QUESTION #1141 Is there a way to make a spout on a 5 gallon white UN Rated pail "tamper evident"?
ANSWER: The spouted covers are designed to be tamper evident. Here is why:

1. The dust cover must be removed from the top of the spout in order to access the spout and can not be reapplied.
2. A piece of plastic inside the nozel must be removed before the contents can be accessed. That too can not be reapplied.
3. A tear strip on the outer rim of the cover must be removed in order to remove the cover.

Those together provide three layers of tamper evidence.

On the receiving end it is only necessary to make the customer aware of the covers inherent design to make sure the container was not tampered with.
