I thought that looked like an old picturehttp://chowhound.chow.com/topics/112642
"Once upon a time, my father, a rib fanatic, thought he had found his dream product. Armour (I think) introduced BBQ ribs in a can. They were rolled like an ammo belt and put in a round can. He proudly brought these home and we all tried them. The entire family was laid out ill for 36 hours. So we sent a little note to Armour saying there may have been a problem. We were rewarded with another can of ribs. Same results. Haven't seen this product since. This was circa 1963 or 64 as best I can recall. Mostly I recall the end result of consumption. On another note, I was happy to see the canned steak and kidney pie on the museum website. I worked in a grocery store in Evanston in the early 70's. We had some of these on the bottom shelf of the prepared food area (right below the Broadcast Corned Beef Hash). In the four years I worked there not one moved. I was always curious about them, but never courageous enough to try one. Just another potted meat memory. . . .
