    Do you mean anything beyond that improper bonding/grounding of the such racks could possibly lead to spontaneous combustion of Wonder Bread due to static electricity build up?

    Nope.

    I've seen huge racks in grocery stores that looked like they were full of milk, not sure what the nec has to do with it; never saw any clamps on them. If lights were hanging off of them then I could see bonding them.

    Is this a situation where electrical "trapeze" is being used for storage?

    I don't see any benefit in general to doing so.

    Think of the poor employees!!!

    Subjecting them to random spontaneous explosions of whole wheat products poses a potentially grave working hazard and could be a possible OSHA or USDA violation.
