Kroger recalls steaks, beef over possible E. coli contamination

Meat lovers were notified of another recall affecting rib-eye steaks and ground beef products over possible E. coli contamination. Consumers in the greater Cincinnati area who purchased Kroger bone-in rib-eye steaks, boneless ribeye steaks and in-store produced ground beef are encouraged to check the label before eating the product. All affected meat was produced between April 23 and June 7, but the company is concerned that consumers may have stored affected products in the freezer. Kroger said it has not received any reports of adverse reactions related to the recall. E. coli infections vary from patient to patient, but it often produces severe stomach cramps, diarrhea and vomiting. Some patients may develop a fever, but most symptoms are resolved within five to seven days, although others may be sickened for up to 10. About five to 10 percent of cases result in a potentially life-threatening condition called hemolytic uremic syndrome, which requires hospitalization for kidney issues. On Friday, Kroger issued a recall of some of its frozen berries over a possible Hepatitis A contamination. The items included Kroger’s Private Selection Frozen Triple Berry Medley (16 oz) and Private Selection Frozen Triple Berry Medley (48 oz). The Private Selection Frozen Blackberries (16 oz) were also subject to the recall.


Dem Senators Join Moms Demand Action’s Push for Gun Ban in Kroger

Senators Chris Murphy (D-CT), Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), and Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) have added their voices to Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America’s campaign for Kroger to ban the open carry of firearms in its stores.

The usual fascist anti-gun suspects are behind this putting the muscle on Kroger (and I suspect its affiliates like King Soopers in Colorado) to ban law-abiding gun owners from open carrying in their grocery stores. That’s what these Democrats are good at; bullying individuals and businesses, and trying to restrict constitutionally-guaranteed freedoms. And these tools are doing this despite the fact that such law-abiding gun owners have thwarted multiple crimes at Kroger stores in recent years. And, consider how grateful those folks at the food plant in Moore, Oklahoma were that a fellow employee had a firearm which stopped that barbarian, Alton Nolen, from beheading ANOTHER employee! Had that brave company COO not had a weapon handy, just imagine how many other people there might have been killed! What would Sen. Dianne Feinstein have suggested in this situation? That the other employees tell Mr. Nolen (after beheading his first victim), “Please stop and give me 5-10 minutes to dial 911 and allow enough time for the police to get here!”?? Where there are more legally-owned firearms, there is less crime. That’s a statistical fact. Don’t believe me? Then pick up a copy of “More Guns, Less Crime” by economist John R. Lott, Jr. Dr. Lott shows, without any doubt, using FBI crime stats and so on…how true that is. John Adams was right. “Facts ARE stubborn things.” But, to Democrat Nazis like Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), facts mean nothing. Its all about feelings. And, such facts don’t support her (and other Dem fascists) extreme liberal anti-gun agendas. So, they deflect, ignore, and twist the truth. I was at a King Soopers store recently here in sunny Colorado, and someone was open carrying a Glock handgun on his belt. He and his wife(?) seemed like nice folks just doing a little grocery shopping. And, nobody I could tell seemed to care that he was carrying. As I passed, I nodded showing my approval, smiled, and said, “morning!” He appreciated that and returned the greeting. Instead of bullying law-abiding gun owners, we should stop and thank them for being good citizens.
