COLLINSVILLE, Ill. -- The little ketchup packet, familiar at takeout eateries nationwide, is about to become a bigger deal.
The Illinois town of Collinsville will try to create the world's largest ketchup packet Saturday for a school fund-raiser. HJ Heinz has donated thousands of bottles toward the effort to squeeze about 130 gallons of the red stuff into a 1,500-pound packet.
The record-setting attempt will help raise money for a local school that was partially destroyed in a recent fire. Organizers are also hoping to catch the eye of the Guinness Book of World Records.
The southern Illinois town is already home to the world's largest ketchup bottle.
