Containment Liquids - Best example How would you transport a gallon of milk from a  store to your home if it was not in a jug, can, or  plastic bottle?  You probably wouldn’t pour it in a pocket!  You would  have to put it in a pail, bag, or some other container  (package). In general, liquids must be contained in a  package to be handled.
