The bug is only present on desktop, only for 3 packs with 3 service area businesses, and only if the user is logged out. Given the number of conditions that need to be satisfied to trigger the bug, I wouldn’t be surprised if this has been going on for a while.

Tom Waddington said on twitter that he’s been seeing the bug for a couple of weeks on both desktop and mobile even when he is logged in.
