Goof on production design?

So when the mom goes downstairs to grab something to eat, realizing that they didn't have dinner that night... she grabs a plastic storage container that looks like the GLAD brand. From what I remember, I don't think that was introduced in the 80's. So I did a bit of research and the GLAD plastic storage container was not introduced until 1999. And I would say that flashback was probably in the late 1980's or so. Anyone catch that, or can confirm whether it was a goof?
