Jarrow methyl B-12 has changed for the worse!

Although in the past this product has been great for me (and many others on forums over the years I've spoken with), in fact, it was a life-saver, just recently, in late June, the quality really tanked. At about the same time, they also switched from glass to plastic bottles, PETE plastic. It had been very reliable for years, and suddenly, the effectiveness was totally gone and I was having to take more and more to get the same effect. It's not just me, either -- numerous other people also noticed it and we all discussed it on a forum (Phoenix Rising). What's worse, when I tried to contact Jarrow they did not respond at all, and I got only a canned response from my inquiry on the website form. It's extremely irresponsible for a company producing a vitamin which affects people's nervous systems to allow or not notice a major change in quality (likely, to keep profits, who knows!?). This is not Vitamin C . . . methyl B-12 is powerful stuff and needs careful management. I switched to Solgar methyl B-12, which is also available here on iHerb. Solgar always uses glass, which is not porous the way plastic is. Methyl B-12 is extremely fragile and will degrade in heat, light, etc., so putting into PETE plastic bottles was a bad decision for Jarrow to have made. That's a big concern that suggests they don't put quality first.
