Good Day, Bad Day
Reading labels, Thanksgiving travelers
OOD DAY FOR: Reading labels, as Tyson Foods said it would change the packaging on its fresh chicken after the USAD said it could no longer use the claim “raised without antibiotics.” The USDA said it had erred in approving the label, because it considers ionophores, a feed additive, to be antibiotics. Tyson started marketing no-antibiotic chicken in June. (AP in Yahoo! Finance)
BAD DAY FOR: Thanksgiving travelers, as bad weather and technical problems delayed flights yesterday, in an ominous start to the busy Thanksgiving travel week. The delays are expected to get worse as mid-week rain and snowstorms hit. “Wednesday is going to be a nightmare over a lot of the country,” said Weather Channel meteorologist Tom Moore. (USA Today)
