Bone fragment scare forces Sabrett hot dog recall

The maker of Sabrett hot dogs is recalling more than 7 million pounds of hot dogs because they may contain bone fragments.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service announced the recall of products made by New York City-based Marathon Enterprises Inc. on Saturday.
The recall affects beef and pork hot dogs and sausages produced on various dates between March 17 and July 4.
The food-safety agency says the products subject to recall are stamped "EST. 8854" inside the USDA mark of inspection.
The agency says the recalled products have been blamed for one minor oral injury.
Consumers who purchased the hot dogs are urged to throw them away or return them to the store where they bought them.
O.J. Simpson could be released as early as October

Four members of the Nevada Board of Parole will convene in Carson City on Thursday to consider the case of Inmate #1027820. The parole hearing will likely be routine, save for one boldfaced fact: The inmate is O.J. Simpson.
Those parole board commissioners must decide whether one of the most infamous men in the nation, imprisoned nearly a decade ago for a bungled Las Vegas robbery, walks out of prison.
But according to two former chairs of the state parole board, the commissioners will treat O.J. Simpson, who turned 70 last weekend, just like any other potential parolee — notorious as he may be.
"That's really the beauty of the system: It's the same for everyone," said Dorla Salling, who served as chair of the parole board from 2000-2009. "It doesn't matter what your name is."
Simpson was acquitted in 1995 in the murders of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ron Goldman, after a lengthy trial that riveted America. He was found liable for the killings in a 1997 civil case.
The so-called "Trial of the Century" captivated the country again last year with the release of an Emmy-winning FX miniseries that dramatized the legal saga and an Oscar-winning ESPN documentary that delved into the social issues surrounding it.
Those series may have reignited public fascination with the former football star, but they will not shade the opinions of Nevada officials at the July 20 hearing, said Thomas Patton, another former chair of the parole board.
"I don't think they're going to be swayed by something that was put out in a media context. They're looking at a particular crime for which he was incarcerated in Nevada," said Patton, who served as chair in 1997 and 1998. "I don't think TV documentaries or shows — I would be very surprised if that played a role in anybody's thinking."
The crime in question, explored in detail in the five-part ESPN film, proved to be Simpson's downfall.
In 2008, Simpson was found guilty of robbing two sports memorabilia dealers at gunpoint in a Las Vegas hotel room. He had broken in with five other men and seized several items he believed were his property — game balls, plaques, photos of his children.
Simpson was convicted of kidnapping, armed robbery and 10 other charges in the crime. Judge Jackie Glass sentenced him to 33 years behind bars, with the possibility of parole after nine years. (He was granted parole on some of the charges against him in 2013.)
McDonald's Apologize to Woman Over Poop-Covered Slide
via U.S. News
The owner of a McDonald's says the restaurant has apologized to a woman who says her 5-year-old son came down a slide at a McDonald's playground in New Hampshire covered in poop.
Justina Whitmore took to Facebook to recount the incident and complain that staff at a Manchester McDonald's didn't take the problem seriously. Whitmore says she was eating when her son came over covered in human waste. She demanded an apology.
The restaurant owner told The Associated Press that that "we hold ourselves to the highest standard and apologize for Ms. Whitemore and her son's negative experience at our restaurant." It said that it has been in touch with Whitmore directly. Whitmore couldn't immediately be reached Thursday.
The Manchester Health Department allowed McDonald's to reopen the play area the next day after it was cleaned and disinfected.
A Health Inspector Finds a Loose Breast Implant at a Texas Strip Club
Wait . . . do strip clubs just have spare BREAST IMPLANTS lying around, in case one of the dancers needs a boost? That's not how any of this works, right?
A strip club in Amarillo, Texas called Cassidy's Polo Club had its health inspection a few weeks ago. And the health inspector found a stray BREAST IMPLANT just sitting there next to some utensils behind the bar.
The club couldn't explain how it got there. But even with the loose implant, they still got an average score on their health inspection, so they'll be able to stay open.
