Abstract (en)

A container is disclosed which comprises a receptacle (2,52,92) having an opening for emersion of contents and a lid which can be located on the receptacle to close the opening. In order to seal the lid to the receptacle a sealing band (18,54,70) with heat sensitive material on two opposed surfaces is positioned in a recess formed between the receptacle and the lid, extending around the opening. The band contacts both the receptacle and the lid so that application of heat causes the band to seal to both, forming a seal for the container. Opening means such as a tear strip are provided to enable a user subsequently to gain access to the contents of the container. The container is particularly well suited to being asepcially filled, e.g. with foodstuffs. <IMAGE>
