Continued approximation instances – Sabrett hot dog 50 pack

Toshiba’s challenges with “approximation” are not theirs alone.  Recently I procured a 50 pack of Sabrett beef hot dogs.  A 50 pack to be specific.  However, looking at the “Servings” language on the package, they have curiously added the word “about”.  “Serving size 1 frank 46G.  Servings about 50″.

Apparently packaging exact quantities of Sabrett all beef hot dogs is not as easy as it seems.  Additionally, the exactness of quantity seems questionable for a variety of items including food products, dry goods and previously mentioned Toshiba LCD TV post.
