I recently went to the store to pick up a few essentials.

It wasn't until I got home that I noticed the labels on some of the items....

Fresh Pack? Why would they have that on the label? Does that mean there's a jar of pickles out there that's NOT fresh?

Sure enough, I notice another jar....

I guess there's a market out there for gross, stale pickles.

Then I noticed another purchase....

"Trusted since 1947"??? What about BEFORE 1947?

After some sleuthing in the archives, I came up with the following story from 1946 in The New York Times:

The following pictures accompanied the story:

Glad they finally got the aluminum foil thing under control.
