Apple Sliced Sold In McDonald's, Burger King, Wawa, and Wegman's Recalled Over Listeria Contamination RiskSliced apples distributed to fast-food and grocery chains across the country are being recalled due to possible Listeria contamination.  There have been no reported illnesses, however Listeria was discovered on processing equipment used by Missa Bay LLC, a division of Ready Pac Foods of New Jersey.

Among the items recalled were apple slices distributed to McDonald’s and Burger King in some states packaged fruit, veggies, salads and sandwiches containing apples distributed to Wawa convenience store and Wegman’s grocery chains, and various apple and fruit snacks with “Ready Pac” labels or “Safeway Farms” labels.  Items recalled have use-by dates of July 8 through Aug. 20.  Any items within the effected date should be discarded.

Paper Trees Made From Recycled McDonald’s Bags – Or – Notice-Forest: What Victory Tastes Like

Paper Trees Made From Recycled McDonald's Bags - Or - Notice-Forest: What Victory Tastes LikePaper Trees Made From Recycled McDonald's Bags - Or - Notice-Forest: What Victory Tastes LikeYou know how some people can take what’s seemingly garbage and make pretty things out of them?  Yeah, artist Yuken Teruya is one of those people.  The artist took a take-out bag from McDonald’s (an item which I imagine millions of are tossed each day) and sculpted some unbelievably beautiful trees out of them.  Using the bag’s bright coloring for the tree, the bag itself is used as a frame for the sculptures.

Wendy’s Launches Lobster And Caviar Burgers In Japan

Last year, Wendy’s both left the Japanese market – then relaunched the brand.  Their re-entry to the Japanese market was heralded by the release of a foie gras hamburger.  Things must have gone fairly well for the brand.  They’re now back with a new Lobster Surf & Turf Burger and the Premium Caviar & Lobster sandwich.

Apparently there’s been a record haul for lobster this season, which has drastically reduced prices on the meat.  Sensing a deal, Wendy’s is offering both of these sandwiches for ¥1,280 (which works out to a tad below $16.50.)Wendy's Launches Lobster And Caviar Burgers In Japan

The Lobster & Caviar sandwich (seen on the left in the photo above) includes both claw meat and lobster salad, topped with a mustard mayonnaise and sprinkled with caviar!  The Surf & Turf Burger is Wendy’s take on the classic dish: one of their square Wendy’s burgers topped with whole pieces of said cheap Canadian lobster.  On an Atkins kick?  There is also an Ocean Premium Salad, which contains both whole lobster chunks and lobster salad which will set you back ¥1,580 yen (a few pennies more than $20.)
