Cell and Vinegar?
Not great, I admit, but miles better than your offerings!
Nokia has begun using a unique, but totally barmy, method of phone distribution: putting its handsets inside crisp packets. Nokia_crisps_01 A Nokia phone turned up inside this woman's crisp packet OK, so the retail distribution method isn’t a Nokia endorsed one, but one hungry woman in the US was shocked recently to find …
"all crisp bags with the same brand and expiration date would be pulled from its shelves"
Because the other two supervisors also lost their phones at the same exact moment.
Waiting for the activation of ambulance-chasing lawyers to liberate a few million USD because of "irreparable psychological harm" to the end consumer.

"...all crisp bags with the same brand and expiration date would be pulled from its shelves"
I hate this creeping ingress of this hideous worst-the-Americans-can-come-up-with quasi-word 'expiration'. Yes, it *is* worse than 'burglarized'.
It really is the end of the planet as I knew it. I first saw it on a Toys'R'Us receipt and hoped it would be confined to there; and maybe 'Plumb Center (sic)'. But no, it's insidiously marching toward ubiquity.
I must go and lie down now.
From another Reg article: "Nokia has never been able to crack the American market..." I hate to admit it, but this actually would be an effective way to remedy that :p
For those curious on why Aldi would pull the bags of crisps - it's called CYA. Standard practice here - when confronted with an event that has even a hint of lawsuit fodder, do anything, no matter how useless, in a grab for points with any future judges. Telling the judge "we didn't know what to do" doesn't get you any points.
It would appear that there was a breach in the clean environment at that point -- so all product from that time should be treated as contaminated. Though unless they publish their standards, with the relevant photographs, I would treat them like any other third-world kitchen.
Anyway there is that show on the travel channel (or is it the food channel) and they've shown a product packaging line, where the last step in the process was to X-ray every bag on the way through to see that no foreign objects were in the bags. I suppose that keeps knives, fingers, rats, and NOW CELLPHONES from being shipped out.
And the travel channel show was about rice noodles in Vietnam or Thailand. Revolutionary.
Reminds me of when I were a young lad. Quavers were doing a promotion whereby you could win a game boy.
As a young lad, my plan was to go to the open crisp shelf in the Co-op and feel every packet to try and find one heavy enough to have a game boy in.
The logic of packing a heavy electronic item in a crisp packet did not strike me as odd at the time.
Anyhow, I was thinking, remember those crisps with the little blue packet in? Does this have little bluetooth packets in?
