Velveeta Recalled in a Dozen States Over Lack of Preservatives

Would Kraft Foods stupidly allow their products to be unsafe? Not likely right? So who’s the idiot who thought so?
‘Velveeta, a processed cheese that some say would survive the apocalypse, is getting yanked off the shelves in 12 states for not having enough preservatives. Kraft Foods is recalling 260 cases of 32 oz. “original” flavor Velveeta from Wal-Mart stores because their sorbic acid levels are too low. This could lead the food to spoil or people to get sick. The mainly Midwest states the recalled Velveeta could have wound up in are Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota and Wisconsin. There are 12 boxes in each case, bringing the total recall to 3,120 boxes. Their UPC code is 021000611614…’

Dog Survives 2 Years in Forest and Gets Home
‘…earlier this month, a camper at French Meadows Reservoir saw the dog five miles from where she had gone missing. Upon being notified, the Brauns immediately drove from their home in El Dorado Hills to the site.

‘After several days of searching proved unsuccessful, the Brauns left Murphy’s old bed and some of their clothing with the campground host, hoping the dog would respond, according to a Facebook post written by the couple.

‘The plan worked. A week later, the Brauns received a call from the host telling them Murphy had been sleeping on the blanket and clothing they left behind, the Brauns wrote. Not only that, the host had been able to coax her into a kennel…’

Why being too kind to animals is dangerous to humans

Woman Who Stopped to Help Ducks Faces Life in Prison
Motorcyclist and daughter killed when they hit her car on highway
‘A woman who stopped to help a group of ducklings on the side of the road in 2010 has been found guilty of causing the deaths of a motorcyclist and his passenger daughter who slammed into her parked car on a Montreal-area highway.

‘Emma Czornobaj was convicted Friday on two counts of criminal negligence causing death and two counts of dangerous driving causing death.

‘Czornobaj, 25, was charged after Andre Roy, 50, and his daughter, Jessie, 16, were killed.

‘Roy’s motorcycle slammed into Czornobaj’s car, which was stopped in the left lane of a provincial highway in Candiac, south of Montreal…’

This might sound cruel but we must not even suddenly brake or swerve if an animal suddenly appears on road. The right thing to do is go ahead and hit the animal. And probably save your life.

Scientists Ready to Test ‘Super Banana’ on Humans
Only setback is the banana is genetically-modified. So is this an effort to promote GMOs?
Human trials planned for genetically-modified “super bananas”
“We know our science will work,” Professor Dale said.

‘”Good science can make a massive difference here by enriching staple crops such as Ugandan bananas with pro-vitamin A and providing poor and subsistence-farming populations with nutritionally rewarding food,” said project leader Professor James Dale.

‘The Queensland University of Technology (QUT) project, backed by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, hopes to see conclusive results by year end.

‘While the modified banana looks the same on the outside, inside the flesh is more orange than a cream colour, but Dale said he did not expect this to be a problem…’
