    President Joe Biden’s campaign demanded a ban on audiences during the proposed presidential debates with former President Donald Trump. The demand appears to be designed to reduce the risk of any Biden protestors attending the event. Anti-Israel protestors often appear at Biden’s public events. In a letter to the Commission on Presidential Debates, the Biden campaign said it was providing notice that it would not participate in commission debates. The campaign said Biden would only participate in network debates. The Trump campaign has yet to sign off on Biden’s proposal. “The Commission’s model of building huge spectacles with large audiences...

    Timothy Bundren must have heard wrong. The sun wasn’t up yet. He was still groggy from starting his morning routine of walking through chicken barns. His phone rang and his contact with the global meat company headquartered in Springdale, Arkansas, just two hours south of his farm, started telling him he would no longer be raising chickens. Bundren, 52, didn’t believe him at first. Just hours later, he was supposed to meet with the bank about another loan to buy the farm down the road. Bundren waited an hour and then called the man back. The news didn’t change, but...

    A Bojangles Cajun restaurant undergoing renovations near Raleigh, North Carolina, accidentally misspelled the chain’s name on an outdoor sign as seen in hilarious photos blowing up online. “I saw the sign and I was looking at it, and I’m like, ‘It’s not right,'” eyewitness Gonzalez Espinosa told USA Today of the recent incident. He saw the botched signage while landscaping near the chain’s Knightdale outlet, which has been undergoing renovations since fall.

    A 34-year-old Billings woman accused of leaving chicken heads on her then-boyfriend’s bed, trashing his apartment, and vandalizing his car, faces potential jail time over allegations she failed to control her alcoholism.

Gilbert sentenced the woman to 31 days in the county jail and two years of probation. Niedge also was fined $700 and ordered to pay $2,666.95 restitution to her victim.

    The early 1970s were the real heyday of beef in the US. It was the era of stroganoff, stews, and casseroles, steak lunches and 60-cent hamburgers. It was also the beginning of a long decline for the all-American meat. In 1975, Americans on average ate close to 90 pounds of beef each year. That has now dipped to around 57 pounds, and chicken has assumed beef’s place as the most-consumed meat in the US.

    U.S. food company Tyson Foods (TSN.N) has said it was voluntarily recalling approximately 30,000 pounds of frozen, fully cooked dinosaur-shaped chicken “Fun Nuggets” or Dino Chicken Nuggets. A limited number of consumers have reported they found small, pliable metal pieces in the product, and out of an abundance of caution, the company said in a release on Saturday that it was recalling this product. The company said the recall includes Tyson brand fully cooked “Fun Nuggets” sold to retailers in 29-ounce packages. No other Tyson brand products are affected, the company said.

    Preparing a bowl of chicken soup for a loved one when they’re sick has been a common practice throughout the world for centuries. Today, generations from virtually every culture swear to the benefits of chicken soup. In the U.S., the dish is typically made with noodles, but different cultures prepare the soothing remedy their own way. Chicken soup as a therapy can be traced back to 60 A.D. and Pedanius Dioscorides, an army surgeon who served under the Roman emperor Nero, and whose five-volume medical encyclopedia was consulted by early healers for more than a millennium. But the origins of...

To ensure a level playing field and a fair comparison, the original chicken sandwich was ordered at each location.

    A new lawsuit accuses employees at a Popeyes restaurant in Atlanta, Georgia, of attacking a woman in the drive-thru after she attempted to have her order corrected.

After Denetra Dawson attempted to fix an incorrect order, employees allegedly attacked her, pulling out a chunk of her hair and leaving her bruised, according to the lawsuit filed Friday. Dawson said in the lawsuit that when she tried to have her order fixed, words were exchanged before the employees attacked. “I didn’t even think I...
  • Will Lab-Grown Chicken Come Home To Roost?

    The US Department of Agriculture, or USDA, just made an industry-shaking decision regarding lab-grown meat. Specifically, the USDA will officially start inspecting lab-grown chicken for US consumption. This marks a major step for consumers looking to satisfy their cravings, guilt-free. When it comes to American eating habits, chickens rule the roost. Each year, America consumes a mind-boggling 8 billion chickens — or roughly 24 chickens per person. But the land, water, and other resources required to raise this poultry can have a negative impact on the environment, in addition to the ethical concerns surrounding animal welfare. Lab-grown meat poses a...

    Independent Sentinel ^ | By M Dowling - June 22, 20232
    The FDA approved lab-grown meat and say it is OK for human consumption. This is the corrupt organization that gave you fake vaccines. According to the makers, they grow a cell from an animal, and meat tastes like meat, chicken tastes like chicken. The come-on is they don’t have to kill animals. And, of course, the climate crisis… It sounds like processed food on steroids. Can you imagine what they might inject into it that we don’t want? Is it crazy to envision them one day mandating we eat it and banning most farms? Between this and the insects, we’re...

    In a story pulled straight from the history books of Australia, humanity is once again losing a battle with bird-kind. According to a write-up in Futurism, feral chickens with supercharged survival instincts have taken over the island of Kauai. The Hawaiian chickens have long made the island famous for their free-roaming status on the local beaches, even acting as a tourist attraction for visitors, though locals of Hawaii have warned that the chickens in question can be quite vicious and may attack on sight. While complaints about these avian adversaries vary from one local to another, some Hawaiians feel that...

    The early bird gets the worm, or so they say. And when Texas Chicken gave out chicken bags on Sunday (April 16) morning to celebrate its 13th anniversary in Singapore, people started swarming the fast food chain's outlets for the freebies. This, however, took a toll on one employee, who had to inform disappointed diners that the free item was out of stock. Customers who purchased a meal deal — or Chick Deal as they called it — for $13.90 each from 11am onwards on Sunday can redeem the chicken bag. A TikTok video shared by Usman Choo showed a...

    Lab-grown chicken has taken a step closer to hitting American grocery stores. The Food and Drug Administration on Monday cleared cultured "cultured chicken cell material" made by GOOD Meat as safe for use as human food. While the FDA said the lab-grown chicken was safe to eat, GOOD Meat still needs approval from the Agriculture Department before i can sell the product in the U.S. If approved, acclaimed chef José Andrés plans to serve GOOD Meat's chicken to customers at his Washington, D.C. restaurant. He's on GOOD Meat's board of directors. "The future of our planet depends on how we...

    No bones about it, Aimen Halim is very unhappy with Buffalo Wild Wings. He’s so upset that the Chicago man recently filed a class-action lawsuit against the Atlanta-based chain, accusing the company of a “clear-cut case of false advertising.” In his lawsuit, Halim says he bought food at a Mount Prospect Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant earlier this year and was served boneless wings that were not, in fact, de-boned wings.
