Not long ago, I believe that all Amazon seller friends have received this announcement from Amazon:
Amazon sellers must remove all opaque or non-single-color Mylar bags from Amazon by August 5.
All ASINs will be removed by Amazon if Amazon FBA sellers have remaining inventory of the relevant film bags after August 5.

After receiving this announcement, many Amazon sellers were confused:
"Are we really asking us to remove plastic bags or all products with plastic packaging?"
In fact, everyone carefully read the title and details of the announcement. This announcement policy is issued for drugs and drug paraphernalia. It is mainly aimed at all opaque or non-monochromatic polyester film bag products, that is, the sales listing itself, not the packaging of the products. .
Click on the "Drugs and Drug Paraphernalia" section of the announcement to jump to the detailed rules. You can see that Amazon's official announcement clearly stipulates that products may not be used in the manufacture, preparation or use of controlled substances, including opaque or non-monochromatic polyester film bags .
So if you are reading the article at the moment, if the product you are selling on Amazon is an opaque or non-monochromatic Mylar bag, immediately remove it from the shelf.

Although this policy release does not target all products with plastic packaging, Amazon's supervision of packaging is still relatively strict.
In order to avoid surprise inspections, the following tips for packing plastic bags should be collected and checked repeatedly:
Polyethylene plastic bag packaging requirements
Polyethylene plastic bags must be transparent . Polyethylene bags with an opening of at least 5 inches (measured flat) must carry a choking warning. Warning messages can be printed on the plastic bag or attached to the plastic bag in the form of a label. Failure to carry a choking warning may result in the product being repackaged.
Warning: To avoid a choking hazard, keep plastic bags out of the reach of infants and children.
Do not use this plastic bag in a stroller, bed, stroller or baby carrier. This plastic bag is not a toy.
This warning should be printed or placed prominently in legible font appropriate to the size of the plastic bag.
The print size of this warning shall be as specified in the table below:
Plastic bags must be at least 1.5 mils ( thousandths of an inch) thick. Polyethylene bags must have a barcode (such as UPC or EAN) or an X00 label that can be scanned through the bag, or an X00 or ASIN label affixed to the outside of the bag. Polyethylene plastic bags must be completely sealed. Polyethylene bags or shrink wrap must not exceed 3 inches of the item . Adult products must be packaged in black, opaque polyethylene plastic bags or shrink wrap.
Note: Items with strong odors (such as candles, incense sticks, or dog chews) must be sealed or bagged to prevent odors from contaminating other items.
