Heinz Factories

From an email I received:

>   I checked and my bottle of Heinz catsup says "Product of Canada"
>
>   Guess I'll be checking out all the Heinz products at the store!
>   Shortly after reading the following e-mail content, I happened to
>   look at the label of a jar of Heinz sandwich slice pickles.
>   Yep...."Made in Mexico."

So much for keeping all those jobs in the U.S.
