HEINZ KETCHUP BOTTLES DISCOVERED - A warehouse in Dover, N.J. (USA) was discovered to have hundreds of crates purported to be Heinz ketchup, which officials said may have been repackaged to sell for a profit. Other tenants who rent the space in a 7,000-square-foot warehouse noticed that bottles of ketchup were exploding. Heinz said fake ketchup bottles were labeled as Heinz's “Simply Heinz,” its premium brand that uses sugar instead of high fructose corn syrup, which is found in its traditional version. 
A 32 oz. bottle of “Simply Heinz Ketchup” and a 36 oz. bottle of Heinz Ketchup each have a suggested retail price of $2.99. Dover Public Safety Director Richard Rosell told the Star-Ledger newspaper in New Jersey that the ketchup's sugars, mixed with acid from tomatoes and vinegar, had fermented in the heat and exploded. Tenants noticed the mess and city officials and Heinz were eventually contacted. 

Jessica Jackson, a spokeswoman for Heinz North America, said the company “has not discovered any information that leads us to believe that the illegally repackaged product is on the market.” “Based on our preliminary investigation, it appears that the unauthorized operation purchased traditional Heinz ketchup and then repackaged the product illegally,” Jackson said in a statement. 
“As a company dedicated to food safety and quality, Heinz will not tolerate illegal repackaging of our products and we will prosecute to the fullest extent of the law anyone who engages in such illicit behavior,” Jackson said. “As the world's leading manufacturer of ketchup, Heinz has stringent manufacturing and packaging practices in place to ensure the safety of consumers. Our quality assurance systems also ensure traceability to the factories where Heinz ketchup is manufactured and packaged.”

Officials discovered the fake ketchup factory after tenants complained about flies and rotten odors coming from a warehouse in Dover, New Jersey (USA). They found thousands of plastic bottles labeled Heinz Ketchup, many of which had exploded after being abandoned in the hot building. It is said someone bought large containers of regular Heinz Ketchup and poured it into bottles labeled "Simply Heinz," a higher-priced product. Needless to say, the warehouse was not the most sanitary of places, and there's no way to know if anything else was added to the ketchup. This ketchup counterfeiting operation should make consumers think twice about what they're putting on their food. In their effort to profit by deception, counterfeiters threaten all population's health.

We are labouring under a deception, we are deceivers who are not just deceiving ourselves but the world as well. Everyone - all the baddha-jivas are more or less cheaters.   That is our position and we must be relieved of such misunderstanding, self-deception and environmental cheating if we are to be placed in our proper position.  ... A proper understanding of one’s own self as well as the environment is proper education. That education must be Vedic. The standard must be drawn from outside this area of maya - this area of misunderstanding; the standard must be drawn from the perfect realm through Veda - revealed Truth.  We must accept revealed Truth and bid farewell to so-called scientific knowledge and other kinds of perceptions that are all erroneous - based on false experience and false information. ... And what’s more, we must not only get relief from this misconception, from misunderstanding the external waves, but we must attain a positive position - to learn to understand the wave, the vibration of Goloka.
