Because your photo rendered vertically, we weren't quite sure which piece you were referencing. The single plastic piece that says 'Running Essentials' on it looks like the display hang tag. It can be removed and discarded. The other two pieces with the clear plastic on them are the hydration bottle cages.
Here is a labelled photo for more clarity.
Hopefully this helps, happy running!
