Title (EN) FOOD CONTAINER HAVING IMPROVED TAMPER EVIDENT FEATURES
(FR) CONTENANT ALIMENTAIRE COMPORTANT DES ÉLÉMENTS INVIOLABLES AMÉLIORÉS
Abstract:
(EN) A plastic food container includes a lid adapted for sealing arrangement with a base. The rim of the base has an undercut formation adapted to receive the perimeter flange and flange tab of the lid when the lid and base are in the sealed arrangement. The flange tab includes an undercut release mechanism that allows a user to grasp a portion of the flange tab and initially open a sealed container via the extraction of the flange tab from the undercut formation by application of pulling force to the undercut release mechanism. The flange tab includes tamper evident means that provides visible indication that the undercut release mechanism has been utilized to initially open the sealed container.
(FR) L'invention porte sur un contenant alimentaire en matière plastique, qui comprend un couvercle adapté pour un agencement de scellement étanche avec une base. Le rebord de la base comporte une formation d'entaille, adaptée pour recevoir la bride périphérique et la patte de bride du couvercle lorsque le couvercle et la base sont dans la configuration de scellement étanche. La patte de bride comprend un mécanisme de libération d'entaille qui permet à un utilisateur de saisir une partie de la patte de bride et d'ouvrir initialement un contenant scellé de façon étanche par l'extraction de la patte de bride à partir de la formation d'entaille, par application d'une force de traction au mécanisme de libération d'entaille. La patte de bride comprend des moyens inviolables qui communiquent une indication visible du fait que le mécanisme de libération d'entaille a été utilisé pour ouvrir initialement le contenant scellé de façon étanche.
