Re: Got Heinz?

Not quite the same thing. If there's a bottle of red sauce on a restaurant table with a Heinz label on, then it damn well better contain Heinz red sauce. If they've refilled it from a bumper 25 litre drum, fine, so long as it's a Heinz drum. Ifit isn't then the cafe owner is booking a painful and expensive session with Trading Standards. Many pubs have been done for refilling branded vodka and whisky optics with some cheap stuff from the cash-and-carry.

The HP compatible cartridges are very different. They don't claim to be HP ink, merely ink in a dispenser that will fit an HP printer. Bit like getting wiper blades from Halfords for the Porsche. They do the job.
