Almost 120,000 Pounds of This Restaurant’s Beef Is Being Recalled at Grocery Stores Nationwide

Many restaurants now serve some of the most popular dishes on the menu at grocery stores—from treats to condiments. Shoppers who picked up one specific dish in the frozen section recently should be on alert because according to two consumers, one option may not contain what is on its label.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) posted an announcement on July 30 that 119,581 pounds of the P.F. Chang’s Home Menu Beef&Broccoli meal—or about 87,000 packages—sold at retail locations nationwide are being recalled because they may mistakenly contain orange chicken inside. Therefore it would contain chicken and egg, a known allergen, but not declare these on the label. This can be dangerous for anyone who has an allergy or sensitivity to eggs who has a bag in question in their possession.

“The problem was discovered when the producing establishment notified FSIS that it received two consumer complaints that the beef and broccoli package contained a chicken-based product,” the alert says. “There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.”

The black packages bear a lot code of 5006 2146 2012 and a Best By date of May 21, 2023. Because the P.F. Chang’s Home Menu Beef&Broccoli is frozen and the Best By date has not passed, FSIS is concerned that it may be in consumers’ freezers.

Accused Peeping Tom Arrested At SW OKC Grocery Store

An accused peeping Tom was caught in the act on Tuesday at a southwest Oklahoma City grocery store.

Police said 63-year-old Roy Salinas was accused of peering over a bathroom stall at a 15-year-old. 

Police said the victim and his mother stayed at the grocery store, along with Salinas, to report what allegedly happened in the bathroom. 

Officers were called to the grocery store near southwest 44th and south Western Avenue just after 9:30 a.m. A Spanish speaking officer spoke to Salinas while the victim recalled to another officer the interaction in the bathroom. 

According to the report, the teenager was using the urinal next to a stall when he felt someone breathing close to him. The victim said he glanced up and saw Salinas looking over the stall at his private parts. 

The situation had made other customers uneasy to let their children out their sight. 

“I have you know grandkids and I have my two sons,” said Gloria Trevino, customer. “So, I’m worried and it’s sad because I’m Hispanic and the guy he was Hispanic, right? So, I’m sad.” 

Salinas was booked into the Oklahoma Detention Center on one peeping Tom misdemeanor. Salinas is still in custody. 

Police said this was Salina’s first arrest in Oklahoma City and he did not appear to have a criminal record in the state.

This Is the Only Way to Contract Monkeypox at the Grocery Store, Experts Say

Monkeypox has spread across multiple countries, including the U.S., where the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has confirmed almost 5,000 cases since May. While reminiscent of the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, this viral disease spreads differently. We all remember masking up, wearing gloves, and waiting in line to get into the grocery store in 2020″ class=”link “grocery store in 2020, but will we have to do that again because of this virus?

Experts at the CDC and others say monkeypox spreads mostly through close, intimate contact with someone who has it. Stuart Campbell Ray, M.D., the Vice Chair of Medicine for Data Integrity and Analytics and a Professor of Medicine at Johns Hopkins tells Eat This, Not That! that the risk is nearly zero “unless you tend to kiss or cuddle other shoppers who are sick.”

That’s because monkeypox is passed through direct contact with an infectious rash, scabs, or body fluid that is on the face, in the mouth, or on hands, feet, chest, or other areas of the body, according to the CDC—but not through the air like COVID-19. Other symptoms of monkeypox include fever, headache, muscle aches, swollen lymph nodes, chills, and exhaustion.

Yet another big difference between the two is that people who don’t have symptoms cannot spread monkeypox, whereas asymptomatic people with coronavirus can still give it to others.
