McDonald’s dumps egg supplier after safety, cruelty concerns

Last year, more than half a billion eggs were recalled after Salmonella sickened more than 1,000 people, the largest egg recall in U.S. history. The recall did not involve Sparboe Farms.

I believe the last line in the McDonald’s/ Sparboe Farms article today is incorrect.

According to the FDA, Sparboe packaged the eggs included in the big recall last year.


You are right. We corrected the story: GBU Editor

Misleading headline?


Family sues police over California Taser death

LOS ANGELES, Sept 1 (Reuters) – The parents of a Southern California man who accuse police of killing their son with a Taser after he honked at a patrol car have sued the sheriff’s department and county.

This headline is misleading. A cause of death hasn’t been determined and to simply infer that the use of one police tool is to blame for this man’s death is irresponsible as there are no facts to support that causal relationship.
