Guys,
I think I read this on a review on an internet shopping site, that the box of 100 Personna Lab blades was counterfeit. Mine arrived and rather than the individual blue wrappers, mine are plain white. Can anyone enlighten me?
Thanks.

I read the same thing on another site. Buyer thought they were real but fake.

I remember seeing a warning on Amazon about these blades last year. I don't remember what it said, something to do about quality control.

Yup, according to the buyer. I am going to try the find the site/thread were I read it.

Sorry, I read it incorrectly. The buyer had the same plain white wrapping around the blade. He and others believe that the packing quality went down. Maybe for bulk orders? Said that it shaves the same.

In the end it's the performance. After a little research, I am tending to believe that Personna simply cheapened their wrapping. Wish someone from the company would chime in here...
Otherwise, I am getting very nice shaves from the blades.

I just emailed Personna. Here is a copy of my email:
Hello,
Can someone from the company confirm or deny that the individual paper wrappings of your Personna Lab Blue Blades are now white, rather than the original blue?
See screen shot of old paper wrappings:

Thank you for your response.

I will update the Nook when and if I get a response.

My 100 Box purchased in March 2014 looks just like the above pic. Are the blades themselves branded?

Absolutely branded. The only discernible difference is the wrapping. I do find it odd that I can't get a response from Personna. Huh
