people open jars in Marktkauf Weil am Rhein

People open the lids of jars and stick their nose in it. Then they put it back. Last week I bought two jars that have been opened (sauce). I see people opening cosmetics all the time and sniffing (shower soap, shampoo...). I don't approve of that, but it happens with food too !

Psst. It happens in more places than just Marktkauf Weil am Rhein.

It's why they put indicators on lids to let you know if the seal has been broken. It's hard to understand why people don't check. Really bad education I think.

Re: people open jars in Marktkauf Weil am Rhein

For cosmetics it's quite normal not only in switzerland, that's why i pick the product some lines behind not the first one (if buying deodorant spray at least).
Never heard of people opening food jars though, usually happens for a production defect so unless you didn't actually see people open the food jars it's probably a defect, that's why there's the security lid so you can check. If you open a sealed jar it also makes CLACK so i really don't see why people would do that in the shop, it would be like opening a wine bottle to smell it and putting it back lol.
