I just bought the pomogranates and the pkg. and all of the shipment were not tightly sealed at the very top. I took them anyway but wonder if I will be safe in using them and if they will last two weeks. I was afraid I wouldn't find them again and that's why I took the chance. I am delighted that such a product now can be had all the time but I am a little concerned and would like your insight.I bought them at Walmart in Stillwater, Mn. They were sending the whole shipment back. Please reply.
