Store bought layered vegetables in a can - from the 1960s [moved from Home Cooking]

Does anyone remember this?

In the early to mid 1960s, my grandmother used to open a can of mixed vegetables to heat up for dinner when she was babysitting me. The vegetables were the usual mix, but were separated from each other in the can by a paper layer. A white paper disc in between the peas and carrots, and another in between the carrots and corn, and so forth. Maybe five or six types of vegetables per can, each on its own layer.

It was great fun pulling the paper out from each layer of vegetables.
(Not so much fun eating the stuff.)

Who made this? Veg-All?

I've done a bunch of google searches and haven't come up with any thing.

Does anyone else out there in Internet land remember this?

Thanks for any help.

(I sent the Veg-All company an e-mail, but haven't heard back. Yet.)
