Must have been a heck of a quality control event that got away from them.

Must be a low 'n slow versus hot 'n fast joke in here somewhere. I stopped by Wally World on the way home yesterday and picked up 10 bags at $6.87 per. First the pork shortage and now this, we better lie low lest we be branded as commodity speculators and blamed for the inevitable price spike.
