Sorry for the delay
One of the reasons I did not post the solution is that I had edited quite a bit and was unsure of the exact fix, however, I do recall that I changed all names of the products to customer. So if a variable name contained products, I changed it to customers. I am unclear if that was what solved it.
Also I had to make sure I was no longer pointing to any pages named products (slapped my forehead a few times on that)
Sorry for the delay and for the murky answers.
