Fedco Apple Bags

I ordered these apple bags from Fedco.

There is no wire embedded in the edge of the bag as advertised.

Anyone have this problem? Am I missing something?

Here is the listing:

Apple Bags An article from the Sept. 2001 issue of Hort Ideas (#9728) recommends apple bags as an alternative to chemical sprays. When the apples reach 1/2 to 3/4" in diameter thin to one fruit per cluster. Place the bag over the fruit, slipping the stem into the slit on the face of the bag. Gather the opening and cinch it with the wire embedded in the edge of the bag to secure the closure. No further treatment needed. Remove the bag three weeks before harvest so that the fruit can "color up." If left bagged until picked, apples will be yellow, even though ripe. Bags are paper with a glassine lining.
