Just like that old commercial in the 80s where that wrestler would yell "Snap into a slim jim" and there would be a big explosion. At least it wasnt false advertising. LOL

Maybe some illegal opened the wrong valve because he could not read the eengleesh. But hey, he's doing a job for 1/2 what an American would do it for, and we get the Slimjim for 25% less....

it's sad that it happened , and it's not funny but I wondered the same thing about someone not being able to read english and then opening the wrong valve.Some people and some companies don't realize that when people don't speak good english or they can't read very well bad things can happen. I remember being in a grocery store and a Hispanic lady was the manager, She was using chemicals and was mixing what smelled like clorox and lye and poured it into the drain. I'm Not 'smart' on chemicals, but I don't think the two mix. On another Occasion A customer must have ordered a cake and they must have told her to make it pretty. I asked to look at it. I will not get a cake from them that she has made. The cake was hideous. It had so many different colors and none of them were matching. It was worst than a fiesta. She said 'oh Honey , I can decorate, and I do a good job.' I wished I had a picture to post it.

This is very sad that this happened. 3 People missing now, I love Slim Jims, but I will have to agree with DavidH64, it will be a while before I eat another one. I do feel bad for the families and I wouldn't want that to have happened to any of my family members or friends...
