I've been a long time buyer of Ziploc storage and freezer bags, all sizes. I use them for everything from food to collector magazines and newspapers to storing winter clothes for the summer. I also reuse them (if not dirty like for storing bread and muffins, even fruit, veggies and snacks) but lately I've received batches that tear upon opening along the edge right below the seal. This makes the seal useless as air or bugs can easily get in and ruin whatever is inside. I'm really bummed as I've been a long-time loyalist to Ziploc so to see their quality cheapened is such a disappointment. I'm a big believer in 2nd chances so will buy another batch this time but if they arrive with the same diminished quality, I'll have to find another brand. Really bummed...as they've been my go-to store-everything bags for years.
