Pickle problems

A factory fire has lead to a shortage of Branston pickle, apparently. Not surprisingly, people are trying to cash in on E-Bay.

From the Telegraph: Sellers are cashing in on a predicted shortage of Branston Pickle as its maker warned of panic buying after a fire at the factory. Premier Foods said it only had enough stock to cover about two weeks of sales after a fire at its Bury St Edmunds factory last week. Jars of Branston Pickle were selling for as much as £16 on online auction site Ebay last night.

My brief search of E-Bay revealed that a large number of sellers had brought the price down from £16.
