  • KFC Owner Gets Handwritten Apology From Patron who Took Extra Piece of Chicken

    08/10/2014 4:47:07 PM PDT · by nickcarraway · 23 replies
    A Nebraska diner who felt guilty for absconding with an extra piece of KFC chicken sent the restaurant owner a handwritten apology letter and $2. Rocky Rasmussen, the owner of a North Platte KFC, got the unsigned letter in the mail. "This $2 is for the piece of chicken I brought home with me on Tuesday," the letter read. "That's stealing. Sorry!" The conscience of the chicken connoisseur kicked in after he or she claimed an extra poultry piece from the buffet at the restaurant. "I took more on my plate than I could eat and I knew it would...

    Milwaukee bar starts serving epic Bloody Mary that comes topped with entire fried chicken. MILWAUKEE, Aug. 7 (UPI) -- Apparently topping a massive Bloody Mary with a bacon cheeseburger slider just wasn't enough for a Milwaukee bar. After gaining some notoriety for their burger-topped drink, "'The Bloody Masterpiece," Sobelman's has decided to raise the beverage bar once again. The establishment has introduced a new drink, "Chicken Fried Bloody Beast," that features all the same garnishes -- cheese, sausage, pickles, olives, onions, mushrooms, asparagus, scallions, shrimp, lemon, Brussels sprouts, tomatoes, celery -- as the Masterpiece. However, the Beast is also topped...

Under Islamic law, chicken can only be eaten if the bird’s throat has been slit while it is still alive. A Koranic verse is also recited during the ritual. Some non-Muslims object to halal because they claim the method of slaughter can cause unnecessary suffering. …

    About half of the raw chicken breasts in a nationwide sampling carried antibiotic-resistant “superbug” bacteria, a U.S. consumer group said on Thursday, calling for stricter limits on use of the medicines on livestock. It could be more difficult to treat people if they became ill after eating chicken with the antibiotic-resistant bacteria, said Consumer Reports, which describes itself as the world’s largest independent product-testing organization. […] Consumers should cook poultry to 165 degrees F (73.8°C) to kill bacteria and take steps, such as using a separate cutting board for raw meat, to avoid cross-contamination of other foods, Consumer Reports said....
  • Most chicken sold in stores is contaminated, Consumer Reports says

    A report released Thursday indicates that just about all chicken sold in U.S. stores contains harmful bacteria, and nearly half are tainted with a so-called superbug that's resistant to antibiotics. The Consumer Reports study, its most comprehensive to date on poultry, tested raw chicken breasts purchased at retail outlets nationwide for six bacteria, then checked for antibiotic resistance. The results showed nearly half of the samples were contaminated with at least one bacterium resistant to three or more classes of antibiotics, what's known as a superbug. Slightly more than 10 percent were tainted with two superbugs. That finding is cause...

    Despite the U.S. Food and Drug AdministrationÂ’s repeated warnings, the latest just this October, about Made-in-China jerky treats suspected of causing thousands of illnesses and deaths of American dogs and cats since 2007, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) gave approval for four Chinese poultry processors to import into the United States, thereby lifting a ban set to protect Americans against deadly avian influenza breakouts. The contaminated chicken jerky were recalled and blamed for 2,500 animal illnesses and more than 500 dogsÂ’ deaths. The FDA later found falsified documents, mislabels, and import shortcuts.

The Chinese-processed chicken will be labeled as ‘made in America!’ Even though the Chinese poultry processors are only allowed to ship cooked meat from U.S.-raised chickens, many in the United States are alarmed that our leaders would allow such a deal to go down in the first place. After all, China is notorious for its food safety problems. Concerns among the public are warranted when you consider that the CDC estimates 325,000 Americans...

The informal rule refers to a policy of not bringing to the floor any measure that does not have a majority of Republican votes. Other Republicans also said Thursday that they got the sense that Mr. Boehner would do whatever was necessary to ensure that the country did not default on its debt.

    Nothing complicated here. In order to strengthen his hand in negotiations, the president’s decided to try to kickstart a hopefully not-too-damaging market sell-off over the debt ceiling. The more the Dow drops tomorrow, the more Boehner and other moderate Republicans will think twice about letting this process play out all the way up to the deadline on October 17th. And if the market doesn’t dive sharply enough — maybe “only” 200 or 300 points — he can always nudge it again next week with more dire rhetoric. It might take losing a thousand points or even two, but damn it,...

The agencies employ about 120,000 full-time officers authorized to carry guns and make arrests, according to a June 2012 Justice Department report. Though most Americans know agents within the Drug Enforcement Agency and the Federal Bureau of Prisons carry guns, agencies such as the Library of Congress and Federal Reserve Board employing armed officers might come as a surprise.

    First it was bacon, now it's chicken wings. With less than two weeks to go before the big game, football fans may find it a bit harder to find their favorite Super Bowl snack. The National Chicken Council released a report that said the demand for wings this year is at “an all-time high” due to decreased wing production caused by the high cost of corn and feed prices. Wings are currently the highest priced portion of a chicken and cost $2.11 a pound in the Northeast, up 12 percent from last year.
  • Meet the Animal Rights Movement’s Rich Aunt (PETA & PCRM 'sugar momma')

    The deceptively named “Cancer Project” animal-rights group is at it again. This time its target isn’t hot dog makers, but grilled-chicken servers. The group, a branch of the PETA-linked Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM), filed a lawsuit in Connecticut yesterday against three restaurant chains demanding warnings about a supposed link between grilled chicken and cancer. As we told the media, PCRM is nothing more than an animal rights front for pushing vegan activism, which is funded primarily by a single rich donor. Since 2003, PCRM and the Cancer Project have derived 60 percent of their budgets from a...

    His priority is to increase government, and he’ll sacrifice the economy for it.One of the big advantages that President Obama has, as he plays “chicken” with congressional Republicans along the “fiscal cliff,” is that he is a master of the plausible lie, which will never be exposed by the mainstream media — nor, apparently, by the Republicans. A key lie that has been repeated over and over, largely unanswered, is that President Bush’s “tax cuts for the rich” cost the government so much tax revenue that this added to the budget deficit — so that the government cannot afford to...

    California voters sent a clear message four years ago when they overwhelmingly approved Proposition 2, a ballot measure banning the "cruel confinement" of certain types of farm animals. What's followed has been nothing but confusion, complain commercial egg farmers. They're seeking certainty on what kind of enclosures for the state's 20 million laying hens will be considered legal under the law. Proposition 2 did not provide specific dimensions for hen cages. It simply said that chickens needed to be able to perform certain behaviors, such as standing, turning and spreading their wings without bumping into the side of a cage...

    BLUFFTON, S.C., - A South Carolina woman said she will argue in court her family should be able to keep a chicken because it is a pet, not a farm animal banned by city ordinance.

    Chicken was in high demand Thursday in the Bay Area, as San Jose's first Chick-fil-A restaurant celebrated its grand opening. Located on the corner of First Street and Headquarters Drive, the store marks the fast food chain's first stand-alone restaurant in the Silicon Valley. Before this one, the closest Chick-fil-A was in Fairfield, and many years ago there was a location in the Sunnyvale Town Center shopping center. The chain intends to open another Bay Area franchise in Walnut Creek in October. Not even a sprinkle of protesters, rallying against Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy's recent anti-gay marriage statements, could darken...
