World's largest ketchup bottle for sale

Every year, the annual Catsup Festival in Collinsville, Illinois draws a big crowd. But the iconic ketchup tank that goes with it may be a thing of the past. The 170-foot-tall water tower is up for sale along with the warehouse next to it. The asking price is $500,000. SOUNDBITE: MIKE GASSMAN, WORLD'S LARGEST CATSUP BOTTLE, INC., SAYING: "We have gotten calls and emails, and our Facebook page is lit up with people up in arms and we say, 'relax, don`t get the torches and pitchforks out just yet! Everything is good for now.'" Fans of the so-called "World's Largest Catsup Bottle" are worried about what could happen to the 65-year-old landmark once it's sold.
