Doubtful Ketchup

Hello Dear Reader,
Another job Mary (Hall) had following her high school graduation was working at the cannery in Leland south of Spanish Fork. Del Monte owned the cannery at that time and they were bottling ketchup. I suppose Mary found the job pretty disgusting—she wouldn’t eat ketchup for years afterwards.

I asked her about it one time and she said they just threw in the tomatoes whether they had worms in them or not. Yuck! No wonder she didn’t eat ketchup. Thank goodness standards are higher now—I guess they are anyway.
