I don't think "generosity of the Walton family" is a thing.

this is the work of a country music radio station in Portland.

Radio station 98.7 The Bull has come forward to take responsibility for at least some of the hidden hundreds.

Nice try, but I still won't listen to country music.

"Generosity of the Walton family" is one of the dictionary's examples of an oxymoron.

So they're just opening packages and tampering with edible goods.  Sounds legit.

Actually they aren't opening the packages, nor damaging the packaging.
Whomever it is, are putting it between the reusable lids, and the tamperproof packaging, or other locations that keep it hidden from general view, but doesn't affect the food in any way.

Example, Hershey's chocolate syrup (I know, not food/chocolate etc.) has a yellow lid, and then a sealed tamperproof secondary cover. The bills were between the yellow lid and the secondary cover. For a box of chocolate cookies, they opened the outside box, but put the moneybetween the box and the sealed celophane tamper evident wrapper.

So no one was at risk of anything, except possibly having $100.00 more in their pocket when they got home.

Hmm money between products, money inside products. I don't know if I would have come forward until after the promotion was over. Now that the news is out you are just going to get fiends opening up all sorts of products and generally creating a mess of the aisles to find free money. If anything I can see stores not wanting this promotion to take place in their businesses, this pay it forward model is anything but that for the stores/workers themselves.
