Young children join a 100-person mob to rob a Philadelphia supermarket

  Young children join a 100-person mob to rob a Philadelphia supermarket Police in Philadelphia say that children as young as 10 took part in mob that ransacked and looted a Wawa convenience store over the weekend.

Listeria caused 25 ready-to-eat food items to be recalled from Kroger stores in three states.

Atlanta-area company GHGB said in its Tuesday recall notice, posted by the FDA, that on Friday it learned “that a single sample of a product tested positive for listeria monocytogenes.”

Listeria kills about 260 of the 1,600 Americans infected each year, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says. Senior citizens, pregnant women and children under 5 are the most vulnerable to listeria’s worse effects. Listeria can cause stillbirths and miscarriage. Listeria symptoms include nausea, diarrhea, high fever, severe headaches, stomachaches, stiffness, confusion and poor balance.

Teleplays – or scripts – for the pilot and final episodes of the show, which were signed by the cast, sold for $57,600 and $51,200.

The list of products in the recall notice includes salsa, guacamole, vegetable kabobs, “Hamburger Fixins,” pico de gallo, Mexican style bean dip, diced onions and similar foods. They were sold in clear, plastic containers mostly in the produce or deli sections of Kroger stores in South Carolina, Georgia and Alabama.

All the products recalled had expiration dates of Thursday, Saturday, Sunday or Monday. But the concern is they could be in customer’s refrigerators.

Gun Violence Was Her Nemesis. Then It Came for Her Son. .
When 41-year-old Trelisa McCray saw dozens of shell casings scattered across a shooting scene on Thursday night, she understood why her son had not been answering his phone. “There’s too many shell casings out here. You can’t tell me my baby didn’t get hit,” she would recall saying. McCray is a member of an anti-gun and violence-prevention group called Mother’s Love, and for eight years she has gone from crime scene to crime scene in her home city of Minneapolis.“More than I can count,” she told The Daily Beast. “We de-escalate the crowd and comfort families.”On Thursday night, she started at a parking lot off Knox Avenue, where a 16-year-old had been fatally shot.
