Thank you for your photo and response.
We tried calling you to talk, but left a message.
Yes, and they do show up in random places as well. But, light shinning through a bag does not make it a defective bag. If it did, then 3.5 mil bags won’t be sold at all, since they all have multiple pinholes. They are like looking at the stars on a clear night. We don’t even sell them, because we think it would lessen the quality of our line of bags, just because of the appearance. People buy them like it’s going out of style just to keep their cost of prepping down.
Now the reason for the foil layer is to protect your food from the light. So unless you plan to store your food in the sunlight or an area that has a lot of light, these and other bags with pinholes would have very little effect on storing your food. A bag with many pinholes, may reduce the length of storage from 25 – 30 years down to maybe 23 – 28 years. Now these numbers have a lot of factors in them, like where you store them (climate, light, ect…), what you are storing, and the thick of the bags. So again, if it is not punctured the bags are fine to use and will last you for years. Please remember, that there 2 – 4 layers of material in these bags protecting your food.
We fold our bags to it keep the cost down for our customers. Instead of sending them cheaper low quality bag, we send our customers extremely high quality bags at great price. If we didn’t fold them, the cost of shipping would raise the price $5 to $15 per order depending on location it’s traveling to. Now if you order 3 or more of these packages with us, then they are shipped in a Large Flat Rate Box, and then the fold is more of a roll over and not a hard fold.
