Ketchup is supposed to stick. If I want slide, I'll open a can of motor oil.

Leave it alone, fer krissakes. It's part of the ritual of eating hamburgers.

Don't you remember the immortal words:

Ketchup, Ketchup, in the bottle.
None will come, and then a lottle.

Is nothing sacred?
LOL! Thanks, ignatzatsonic. Yes indeed! I do remember those immortal words -- but I also remember how sore the palm of my hand would get when I had to keep smacking the bottle to get the ketchup out!

All kidding aside, I love the IDEA of this product, but the risk of it being a contaminate is one that seriously needs full investigation. It's pretty clear now that the plethora of these contaminates are greatly increasing the incidence of various forms of cancers and other illnesses.

@ Sue: "...the plethora of these contaminates ..."??? Spoken like a true attorney!

What I like and found what makes it a bit easier to get ketchup out of a bottle is not putting in the frig! You can take a bottle of ketchup of course seeing preservatives as always and leave some brands out as long as the caps are on tight.

When you first go to use a bottle left out you have to remember to shake it up first before going to slap the bottle or ssssplatttttt... the water separation is seen! Once shaken up a bit the ketchup can simply be squeezed out without any bottle slapping needed.

Note this is with the plastic not glass bottles and usually 57oz or the larger 64oz. Restaurants like burger stops leave ketchup and mustard bottles on tables all the time without being in the fridge while open. Family or Privately run food stops not large chains like McDs or whatever would tend to see this the most. (going way back to the 1950s that is)

I figured it out before this, make sure top is secure, then keep bottle upside down, I do that with all shampoo bottles always works

I've never put the ketchup in the fridge. For those slow restaurant ketchup bottles, just slip a butter knife in the neck along one side. A Guy

They were the 2nd place winner according to the posted link. Wonder what was first place.

I think it should be considered the default. Almost EVERYTHING is known to the state of California to cause cancer. Imagine all of the saved (rather, unused) resources if you didn't have to label seemingly 99% of the products sold in the U.S. with that extra bit of info. Not really environmentally friendly. And mostly useless to boot.

Well, "we" Californians passed this:

OEHHA Proposition 65 Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986

Now there are signs everywhere.

Sorry A Guy, I wasn't implying that 100% of CA residents are responsible.

By "signs everywhere" are you referring to the labeling requirements in that doc? Or large, physical signs, viewable from a distance?

Saw Gray Davis signed the new language added, who was Gov. when it first was made law?

I searched for a list of the chemicals but could only find additions to an apparently already existing list. One of the apparent additions was nitrous oxide, a.k.a. "laughing gas".

Edit: found the full list.

Wow, moneymaker there. Reminds of the nationwide requirement they're trying to get through to mandate that ALL street signs in the U.S. be changed to be upper/lowercase for legibility (if they are not that way already). IOW, capitalized correctly. If you ask me, they are more legible, and from farther away, if they're in all caps (not shouting, mind you).

No worriies, I was just pointing out we brought it on ourselves.
What about those props in the past few years that were voted in yet knocked down by judges? Elected judges?
