Summary
Using encoded characters such as ampersands in rule criteria / within catalog data won't evaluate properly.

Repro
Create a rule such as, Exclude Items With ProductType Is Not "Shorts & Pants", zero results will return for this.

Workaround
Overwrite the catalog with a file that does not contain "&"s in Product Type field values. At that point the scenarios and rule should be re-configured to use the new values that do not contain the ampersands.
