Weird, acrid chemical smell in the lids.
Reviewed in the United States on September 25, 2020
I was looking forward to using these containers for everything-- flour, tea, catnip, all sorts of stuff. When I opened the box and got to the lids, there was a weird, burning chemical smell.
I soaked them for hours and the smell is still there. I will admit that I deal with hypersensitivity to things like perfume and artificial flavors and dyes. This could be why I am noticing such a strong smell on the lids, so your individual experience may vary. My mother and husband also smell it, but not as strongly as I do.
Even if you're lucky enough to not notice a weird smell, it is obvious that there is something strange in the lid seal. I really don't want that tainting my dry goods. I will be returning these and looking for something less sketchy.
