Not necessarily. What if the truck that delivered the insulin from the 
manufacturer to the distributor got overheated? What if the distributor 
didn't refrigerate the insulin properly? What if one of the trucks 
between the distributor and your front door got overheated? What if the 
delivery was left outside your front door for several hours on a hot 
day? What assurance do you have that none of these things happened?
