Ketchup Counterfeiting Scheme

When officials busted into an abandoned warehouse in Dover, New Jersey, they discovered an unusual counterfeiting operation. No, not luxury goods or other things you'd normally think about when you think of things being knocked off - the police stumbled upon a strange tomato ketchup counterfeiting scheme:

It looks like a grisly murder scene. Red splotches pooling on a warehouse floor. A rotten smell. Insects swarming. Crates knocked to the ground.

But no one died here.

This wasn't carnage. This was condiment.

Inside a privately owned Dover warehouse are the remnants of an abandoned Heinz Tomato Ketchup counterfeiting scheme.

The ketchup appears to be real but the labels on the plastic bottles are a fraud, according to a Heinz spokesman.
