FreshDirect packaging question

rockykay | Apr 17, 2013 11:46 AM

Fresh Direct started using these new deli containers and they're impossible to get in to. Not the tab and pull ones, these have half an inch deep plastic running around the outside edge, with semi perforated lines about 1/3rd an inch apart. They don't break off, they don't pull off, the lid won't come off. After trying for forever to get into my grated cheese, I gave up and took a knife to it.

I have contacted Fresh Direct several times, via email, phone and their facebook page and still no answer. Their phone CS people say they don't know and that they've been getting a lot of call about the containers, no one has responded to either my email or FB message.

Does anyone know how to get into them? This is ridiculously frustrating.
