Is the following sentence grammatical please?

This can lead to further problems such as providing necessary products less of a priority than unnecessary advertised product.

I feel there is something wrong/unnatural about the underlined. Wouldn't the following be better?

This can lead to further problems such as making necessary products less of a priority than unnecessary advertised product.

I like your revision, but I think it should be unnecessary advertised products.

Where did you find the ungrammatical original, ZigZ4g?

I wrote both. How come?

The way the first post was worded made me think you had found the sentence somewhere and felt there was something wrong with it but couldn't quite work out what.
