    Beyond Meat's Pennsylvania processing plant could be a cesspool of bacteria - leaked documents claim Listeria and mold had been found in the facility 11 times in less than a year. Listeria, a foodborne bacteria, was detected in the plant during the second half of last year and the first half of 2022, according to Bloomberg, which viewed the documents. A Beyond Meat spokesperson told DailyMail.com that the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture conducted inspections in the plant in March 2022 and September 2022 and found 'no instances of nonconformance with regulations.'

    DEAR MISS MANNERS: We just attended the wedding of a close friend’s daughter at a hotel. Our table’s main courses, braised beef or salmon, were offered in oddly generous portions. Each plate could have fed at least four people. It seemed like such a waste that I quietly asked for a doggie bag, as I did intend to give some of it to our dog. This raised the eyebrows of a couple at our table, relatives of the groom whom we had never met. The server said “good idea” and swiftly gave us a box. We wrapped up just the beef, nothing else. Another couple followed suit. Our daughter, a close friend of the bride, is on bed rest in the last two weeks of pregnancy. She had asked if we could bring her a slice of wedding cake. When the servers finished serving cake to the guests, and it was obvious there was plenty left over, I politely requested a piece for “an absent guest.” The groom’s relatives then roundly and loudly attacked us for being rude and “greedy”...
    Passengers on an American Airlines flight from Charlotte, North Carolina to New York endured a wilting six-hour delay in two boiling hot planes without food or water as fellow travelers cracked up around them. Flight 327 began with great hope of leaving the runway on Sunday at 1:07 p.m. from Charlotte Douglas International Airport, scheduled to touchdown in JFK three hours later. After the passengers boarded, however, the flight crew identified a 'maintenance issue' and takeoff was delayed while repairmen worked to fix the problem, according to airline spokesman Will Roach. Passengers comfort a Spanish-speaking woman who appeared to be having a panic attack that reduced her to tears during the lengthy delay Three hours later, the problem remained.  'Just sat on a plane with limited AC for three hours while they were fixing the fuel tank,' Charlotte Observer reporter Genna Contino tweeted during the protracted pause in her trip to the Big Apple.  'Turns out they can't fix it and now we're switching planes,' Contino said. The airline said that it kept the jet bridge connected during the entire delay...
    (Washington) Beginning about 7400 years ago, Siberian dogs evolved much smaller than wolves. According to a new study, they depended on humans for food, including marine mammals and fish trapped beneath the ice. Posted at 5:26 p.m. According to Robert Losey of the University of Alberta and lead author of the study published Friday in the journal, the research helps us understand how early dog ​​populations may have developed. Scientific advances. “Long-term changes in dog diets are often oversimplified,” he told AFP, explaining that previous work had focused on two hypotheses to explain the shift from dogs to wolves. , which began 40,000 years ago. First, more friendly wolves that approached humans for meat isolated themselves from their fellow wolves and were eventually domesticated. Second, after the Agricultural Revolution some dogs developed a better ability to digest starch. To delve deeper into the diet of ancient dogs, Robert Losey and his colleagues examined the remains of about 200 dogs that lived 11,000 years ago, as well as a similar number of...

    Love Is Blind contestants were deprived of adequate amounts of food and water and plied with alcohol while filming Netflix’s hit reality TV show, a new lawsuit alleges. In a proposed class action lawsuit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on behalf of all Love Is Blind participants and those on similar reality shows, season two contestant Jeremy Hartwell alleges he endured several labor abuses while filming the show, which is centered around a dating experiment in which couples can only see each other after they’ve gotten engaged. Hartwell, who lives in Chicago and is a director at a mortgage company, was not featured in the second season of the show but was filmed for a week in 2021. During that time, he alleges in the lawsuit, the 30 cast members were isolated from the outside world, deprived of water, and endured up to 20-hour work days. Ultimately, Hartwell failed to get engaged and make the final cut of the show. “The only drinks that defendants regularly provided to the cast were alcoholic beverages, soft drinks, energy drinks and...
    President Joe Biden shifted his narrative on inflation at a California fundraiser Friday night, despite his administration stressing for months that inflation was only temporary. “We’re gonna live with this inflation for a while,” Biden said at the event. “It’s gonna come down gradually, but we’re going to live with it for a while.” The Beverly Hills fundraiser with wealthy Democrat donors was hosted by billionaire Haim Saban, a media mogul. Haim Saban (Willy Sanjuan/Invision/AP) That was a slightly different message from the more positive one he issued to Americans while visiting the Port of Los Angeles earlier Friday afternoon. “Inflation outside of energy and food, what the economists call core inflation, moderated the last two months,” Biden said. “Not enough, but it moderated. It’s come down, and we need it to come down much more quickly.” According to the latest consumer price index numbers for May, month-to-month core inflation was at 0.6 percent, the same percentage it was in April. Year-to-year core inflation was up 6 percent in May compared to a year ago, down from 6.5 percent in...

    Measuring up to 65ft long and weighing an estimated 100 tons, the megalodon was one of the most ferocious animals when it swam in oceans around the globe between 23 and 3.6 million years ago. So why isn't the megalodon around today? A new study claims that the beast was driven to extinction by great white sharks, which out-competed them for food – despite being three times smaller.

    (CNN)Meat-heavy banquets have long been thought to be a common feature of early medieval life for England's kings and nobles, who are often depicted feasting on legs of animal flesh and knocking back goblets of ale in the great halls of their realm. However, a new study that examined the dietary signatures contained in bones of more than 2,000 skeletons has cast doubt on this assumption, finding that most Anglo-Saxons ate a diet rich in cereals and vegetables and low in animal protein -- no matter what their social status.Ancient Americans ate billions of this marine creature. Now its a delicacyArchaeologists were able to glean this information by analyzing the presence of different isotopes, or variants, of the elements carbon and nitrogen in bone collagen.

    International hacking collective Anonymous has warned Western companies who are continuing to operate in Russia to pull out or risk facing cyberattacks in light of the invasion of Ukraine. Anonymous is responsible for several attacks of Russian state-controlled media and government websites in which it forcibly swapped Kremlin-directed programming for videos of the bloodshed on the ground in Ukraine and anti-war statements. The collective has also conducted cyber raids on the likes of Russia's media regulator Roskomnadzor and Russian intelligence and security service FSB, leaking thousands of classified documents to expose the details of Putin's plans to conquer Ukraine and undermine the Kremlin's domestic propaganda drive. But now, the hacktivists are turning their attention to large corporations who have not yet suspended their operations in Russia amid the war. Anonymous' official Twitter account posted yesterday that companies had 48 hours to 'pull out' of Russia or face becoming a target of further attacks. The same account declared on Thursday that its #OpRussia cyber campaign was 'launching unprecedented attacks' on Russian government websites and would double the capacity of its attacks....
    A New Jersey chef who appeared on the Food Network's show Chopped in 2020 has been arrested on suspicion of sexually assaulting a child, a year after being sued by two women who say he forced himself on them when they were minors.  Shalom 'Sal' Yehudiel, 40, is accused of sexually assaulting a child in Teaneck, New Jersey. The alleged crime was reported to Bergen County prosecutors in November last year, around the same time as two women sued him.  Those women included a former waitress who worked at his restaurant, The Humble Toast. She said she was working for him when she was 17 when he forced her to perform oral sex on him.  Another woman claimed he abused her when she was 15.

    Food prices were soaring long before Russia invaded Ukraine, but the invasion is causing them to increase even more. Journalists Eddy Wax and Gabriela Galindo, in a listicle published by Politico on March 15, lay out five ways in which the conflict will have a major impact on the global food system. The COVID-19 pandemic has played a big role in soaring food prices. COVID-19 has been the world’s worst health crisis since the Spanish flu pandemic of 1918 and 1919; according to Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, COVID-19 has killed more than 6 million people worldwide — including over 966,000 in the United States. And the pandemic has made food distribution more difficult. Now, in addition to facing to the worst health crisis in over 100 years, the world is seeing the worst conflict in Europe since World War 2. “Guess from where the U.N. World Food Programme sourced more than half of its supplies for the hungry across the globe in 2021? Yes, Ukraine,” Wax and Galindo write. “When this ‘breadbasket of Europe’ is knocked out of...

    A woman was stunned when she got home from the airport and discovered that the $3,000 worth of gifts she'd purchased in Europe were missing from her suitcase — and in their place was dog food.  Gina Sheldon, an attorney from Portsmouth, New Hampshire, was happy to have her Christmas shopping taken care of as she returned home from a trip overseas. She had spent 11 days traveling across Italy, and along the way, she purchased presents to give to her family for the holidays - including a leather jacket, wristlet purses, and more.  But when she returned home and opened up her suitcase, she discovered that all of the pricey presents she bought on her trip were gone, and instead, they had been replaced with piles upon piles of dog food, as well as a few dirty old T-shirts and a bottle of shaving cream.

    Farm worker Susana Valencia receiving the J&J vaccine in March Hundreds of Latino-based non-profit organizations in dozens of states were able to better assist already-vulnerable communities amid the novel coronavirus, thanks to a grant system from a leading non-governmental organization that also worked steadily to help Puerto Rico recover from Hurricanes Irma and Maria. Hispanic Federation (HF) has dispersed more than $20 million in grants to more than 350 non-profits since April 2020, helping “deliver emergency services, including food and housing assistance and healthcare, to some of the most overlooked and vulnerable communities during times of crisis,” the agency said in a report released this week. NBC News reports that among the organizations that received a grant was Florida’s non-profit, non-sectarian Redlands Christian Migrant Association, which serves many children from farmworker families. “The $85,000 grant from the Hispanic Federation was for Covid vaccination efforts, rental and utility assistance, and educational programs,” which ultimately aided about 200 families. “Most of the families and farmworkers are the ones that are always the last and have always been the ones that are forgotten about,” executive director Isabel Garcia told NBC News.

    YUM. I had to grin when I found out that Nov.21 is celebrated as National Stuffing Day. Stuffing and dressing are probably my favorite parts of Thanksgiving dinner, and I’m already looking forward to cooking and eating it this week. In my home, we celebrate a soul food Thanksgiving each year with friends and family; though we didn’t host it last year, we are having a few fully vaccinated and boostered folks over on Thursday. Musicians have been paying homage to soul food for decades, so for today’s Black Music Sunday, I invite you to join me in a repast of savory sounds. I have always loved the tune “Home Cookin’” from my favorite jazz vocalese group, Lambert, Hendricks & Ross. The lyrics to the song, composed by Horace Silver, were written by group member Jon Hendricks. x YouTube Video Here’s the chorus: Soul food Talkin’ about soulful food Candied yams, hot biscuits and big fat juicy hams… Soul food Talkin’ about soulful food Collard greens, hot cornbread, and fatback swimmin’ in beans  Here’s Silver’s original instrumental. x YouTube Video This...
    Three hotel workers have been arrested in Egypt for 'endangering guests' lives' after 50 foreign tourists were hospitalised with food poisoning.  They were admitted to hospital after they had dinner over the weekend in an unnamed hotel in the Red Sea beach resort city of Hurghada, which is popular with tourists for scuba diving.  Egypt's chief prosecutor Hamada el-Sawy said in a statement that the workers, including the hotel's head chef, face accusations of endangering the guests' lives.

    Shortly before a a starving 15-year-old Houston boy called the police to report that he and his two younger brothers have been living with the rotting corpse of their nine-year-old sibling for a year, he texted his mother to tell her he could not take it anymore, it has now emerged. The 911 call on Sunday led to a series of disturbing revelations, including that the three children, ages 15, 10 and 7, had been left to fend for themselves for several months, relying on food donations from unsuspecting neighbors to survive, while sharing an apartment with the decomposing remains of their sibling, even as their mother and her boyfriend lived just 15 minute away. Detectives with the Harris County Sheriff's Office questioned the woman and man, who were then released pending the outcome of the criminal investigation. Child welfare services in Texas have also launched an investigation. Erica Chapman, who lives at CityParc II at West Oaks Apartments, said she was among the people who had been feeding the malnourished 15-year-old, not knowing he was living with his two younger brothers....
    President Biden’s supply chain crisis is impacting grocery store’s ability to keep food on shelves and workers employed. “Typically where shoppers can find snacks, canned goods, and pet food, the shelves were bare and nearly empty,” a Jacksonville news station WJXT reported. “In Target, fruit snacks were limited, protein bars were nearly gone too, and Lunchables were low in stock,” the outlet said. “We saw the least amount of available frozen foods at Publix and snack foods like beef jerky were running low.” “Both stores had limits on pet foods,” WJXT added. CEO of the Michigan Pork Producers Association Mary Kelpinski told the Detroit Free Press the supply chain crisis is hurting suppliers’ ability to keep food on the shelves. “Nationally, our numbers are down,” Kelpinski said. “Demand is very good. Everyone wants bacon, but we have fewer pigs.” The challenge of keeping food on the shelves for consumers comes as the supply chain is suffering from a deficit of labor primarily due to the federal government and Democrat-controlled state governments’ dispensing large unemployment benefits that outweigh private sector wages.

    (CNN)After a perilous 14-hour drive from Kandahar, Afghanistan's second-largest city, to the capital of Kabul, a flight to Qatar, another to Washington, DC, and a week in Fort Lee, Virginia, AA and his family finally made it to New Haven, Connecticut, their new home. AA worked as a contractor and translator for the US government in Afghanistan from 2008 to 2010 and is one of the thousands of Afghans that have fled or are trying to flee the country with their families after the fall of Kabul to the Taliban on August 15. The 33-year-old man says he is fortunate to have escaped, but that many of his friends weren't as lucky. He has asked CNN to withhold his real name out of concern for the safety of his relatives and friends that remain in Afghanistan.White House approves plan to coordinate with outside groups on evacuating US citizens and Afghan allies"That's why I'm not showing my face," AA told CNN in a video interview.

    Representative Seth Moulton defended his secret trip to Afghanistan by claiming he was 'saving lives' and bringing light to what's really happening on the ground in Kabul. The Democratic congressman, who secretly flew to Kabul on Tuesday with Republican Rep. Peter Meijer, reasoned that they brought their own food, water and toilet paper to avoid taking resources or burdening forces on the ground. Moulton and Meijer received a slew of backlash from the White House and their fellow members of Congress over their unannounced trip in the midst of a chaotic withdrawal. 'I don't care one bit about anonymous quotes from Washington when I'm saving the lives of our allies,' Moulton told the Boston Globe in a phone interview from Doha, Qatar on Wednesday. In a Tuesday statement on the trip, Moulton, who represents Massachusetts' 6th district, cast the trip as an act of congressional oversight as the Biden administration continues to stonewall and provide limited information – including not revealing how many Americans still need evacuating. The two flew to the United Arab Emirates where they waited for empty...
    Reviewer’s Notebook is a series in which our food reviewer Andy Berlin shares his favorite bite and chips of the week. This week’s focus was on fantastic brunch and brunch: an alpine-style pizza at Gilbert, an eggplant dip at a West Side Moroccan restaurant, and a plate of Huevos Rancheros in Midtown. Forgive me for skipping dinner, but my food will not be hidden before dark. I shared Seven course lunch Kebabs, two different tokens and a sweet chicken pie in Aljohar Malin Jewel. Near Phoenix, I drank a tequila cocktail and shared a plate of French pork pozzolos. And in the heart of a sprawling Gilbert shopping center, I spotted a fast pizzeria serving creamy flames from the Alsace region of France. Although the dishes come from different corners of the world and the valley, one thing that is common to all the foods on this list is that they are so good that they are not shared. Here are the best things I ate this week. Huos Rancheros or Presidio Mexican food Purpecha cocktails flew out...
    This is the terrifying a moment a British sailor was surrounded by a pod of killer whales which tried to capsize his boat 'so they could eat him'.  Alan Bruce, 63, was manning a 44ft sailing yacht in the Gibraltar Strait with Frenchman Stephen Peare, 49, when four orcas suddenly began ramming and rocking the vessel in a bid to throw them off.  The pair managed to record a short clip of the mammal family, which consisted of an 18ft male, a female and their two calves.  The experienced sailors retreated below deck and radioed for help before enduring 90 minutes of harassment from the animals as they repeatedly shunted the hull of the boat.  They also deliberately broke the rudder to disable the yacht, in what Mr Bruce described as 'payback' for humans overfishing their natural habitat.      Alan Bruce, 63, (pictured) was manning a 44ft sailing yacht in the Gibraltar Strait with Frenchman Stephen Peare, 49, when four orcas suddenly began ramming and rocking the vessel in a bid to throw them off Mr Bruce, from...
    Leo and Romiro Mendez alongside their 2-year-old son A married gay couple said they were called homophobic slurs, threatened with a weapon, and then literally chased out of a California Burger King by an employee last month.  Leo and Romiro Mendez, who have been married for seven years, ordered meals for themselves and their 2-year-old son via the Burger King app July 24.  'Our two-year-old son was hungry, so I decided to place an order using my Burger King app so we wouldn't have to wait for the food and because it's right off the freeway,' Leo Mendez told the outlet.  But when they got to the Salinas restaurant's drive-thru window to pick up the food, they were told it was closed, Newsweek reported.  'When we got to Burger King restaurant, the manager refused to give us our food saying the restaurant was closed even though they were still open.' Leo Mendez said an employee then began yelling at them and made threats about using a weapon. Mendez said a Salida Burger King worker yelled anti-gay slurs at...
