The co. says its EP Clear Labels is a first-of-its kind clear label for placement over a bar code without jeopardizing bar code scanning. The enhanced performance electronic article surveillance (EAS) labels reportedly offer the smallest-size EAS label available for protecting small, thin, un-carded cosmetics and other high-value merchandise. The labels are a visual deterrent to theft and have been proven in retailers' pilot studies to reduce theft by more than 15 percent, the co. states. The high-theft product category of health-and-beauty aids is one of the key areas to benefit from these new radio frequency label circuits, as the labels are small in size and can protect items
often targeted by thieves, such as cosmetics, perfumes and other small merchandise.
