It really seems to be the wrappers themselves. Obviously buying  
another brand might help, but I'm really curious as to what process,  
apart from that particular manufacturer rubbing its hands together in

there wasn't enough baby sputum in the last batch, so let's make sure  
there's enough to really stink this time," is being implemented.
