Should I have said something? (grocery store product movers)

I was doing my weekly shopping on Saturday morning. When I came around the end of an aisle, I saw a woman (a regular who I see every week) trying to stick a canister of dry bread crumbs onto a shelf piled with bags of egg noodles. It took her a few tries to get it to stay there without falling off. Then she turned and walked away. She had to have seen me standing there looking at her. I've noticed that every week at this store I find lots of items in weird places. I don't know if she has some weird fetish and is personally responsible for all or most of them, or if she genuinely decided she didn't want those breadcrumbs any more and was too lazy to walk them back to where she had gotten them.

I didn't say anything, mainly because I don't like being confrontational, and also because it wouldn't affect the selling of the item (unlike refrigerated or frozen items that are left on shelves or items that shouldn't be frozen that I've seen in the freezer). Would you have said something to her?
