    A former chef at a local village pub in England was sentenced to four months in jail after serving an under-cooked meal to churchgoers, leading to one death and 30 people falling ill. John Croucher, 40, the chef at the Crewe Arms Pub located in Hinton-in-the-Hedges, Northamptonshire, was given a four-month jail sentence, suspended for 12 months, after he acknowledged he may have been "rushed" while making the meal on Oct. 8, 2018, according to the Guardian . Out of 35 parishioners, 32 were affected by the shepherd's pie, which was filled with mince, the report added. "I really hate to say it, but I think I was rushed," Croucher admitted. "Remorse is an understatement." 'LIFE AFTER TOP CHEF' GIVES D.C. LOTS OF LOVE The meat in the shepherd's pie entree had allegedly not been "cooked properly" the night before. While the meat was recooked the following day, Croucher did not check the temperature before serving the dish.

If I need to, I’ll find some adult diapers or whatever. I’ll find a trash bag on the sideline.’ It was good to go," Carlson said, via Pro Football Talk. The kicker had to deal with three consecutive penalties before he was even able to attempt the kick.

    Daniel Carlson came up huge for the Las Vegas Raiders with a pair of clutch kicks and he was literally willing to do anything to play against the Cowboys.  The Thanksgiving matchup between the Las Vegas Raiders and Dallas Cowboys was full of big plays — even if an uncomfortable amount of those plays were the result of penalties. But you could argue that Vegas kicker Daniel Carlson came up with two of the biggest. As part of the five field goals that the kicker drilled through the uprights for a perfect day at the office (he was 3-of-3 on extra points as well), Carlson’s biggest boot came just after the two-minute warning when he blasted a 56-yard field goal to give his team a three-point lead. Even after Dallas tied things up and forced overtime, Carlson and the Raiders wouldn’t be deterred. So, despite timeouts and penalties keeping him iced for quite a while by normal standards, he stepped up and drilled the game-winner in overtime to give Las Vegas the 36-33 win. It turns out, however, that Carlson was...

    CAIRO (AP) — Egypt’s chief prosecutor has ordered the detention of three hotel workers pending an investigation into the food poisoning suffered by about 50 foreign tourists at a hotel in a popular Red Sea resort. Public Prosecutor Hamada el-Sawy said in a statement late Sunday that the workers, including the hotel’s top chef, face accusations of endangering the guests’ lives.

    HAVING a baby is an exiting time but it takes a lot of preparation to make sure your home is child-proof. Your home can be a dangerous place for a child so it's important to remove and replace anything that could be toxic to them. 1Being a parent can be hard - especially when we are juggling watching the kids with everything else - so it's important that you child-proof your homeCredit: Getty Whether it's your appliances or the food you have in the fridge there are plenty of potential hazards that may harm your baby.

Most cases of poisoning in the UK come from an overdose of medications, this can include both over the counter medications such as paracetamol and prescriptions medications such as antidepressants. In order to reduce your child's risk of poisoning there...

    An anti-government demonstrator waves the national flag as they block the street, with burning garbage dumpsters, in front of Lebanon's central bank in the capital Beirut on March 16, 2021, during a protest against the deteriorating economic situation.JOSEPH EID | AFP | Getty Images Lebanon suffered a total power outage over the weekend, leaving its population of 6 million without centrally generated electricity for 24 hours. The state electricity company said in a statement that the shutdown of the country's two main power stations, due to fuel shortages, had "directly affected the stability of the power network and led to its complete outage, with no possibility of resuming operations in the meantime." Power returned late Sunday after the central bank granted the energy ministry $100 million in credit to buy fuel and keep its plants operating. Officials had warned the outage was likely to last several days. The crisis is creating a nightmare for the country's residents, but has been a long time in the making. Gas shortages might sound familiar — the U.K. and the rest of Europe are...

    Illegal cannabis farms along the west coast of the US are infringing on the natural habitats of wild animals and poisoning their food and water sources with illegal pesticides that have been banned by the Environmental Protection Agency.  In addition to these illegal pesticides, fertilizers, clothing, plastics, and other kinds of trash now pollute the areas. Kevin Mayer, a US Forest Service law enforcement assistant special agent in charge, said, “The true crime here is the fact that they’re killing off basically America’s public lands, killing off the wildlife, killing off our water. This is stuff that, you know, it’s not going to repair itself.” Illegal cannabis is not necessarily the problem to wildlife, it is the heavily administering of poisons and pesticides. Gallons of carbofuran, a banned pesticide, were also discovered at one illegal cannabis site that was raided by police.  Wildlife ecologist Greta WengertIt, said, “It is incredibly toxic. A quarter-teaspoon could kill a 600-pound black bear. So obviously, just a tiny amount can kill a human. It remains in an ecosystem for a long period of time.”...
    THINK food poisoning and the culprit that springs to mind is most likely raw chicken. Earlier this year, one person died and more than 200 children were poisoned by salmonella linked to breaded chicken nuggets and goujons. 5Astoria Jones suffered a fever, hot and cold sweats, sickness and diarrhoea because of salmonella poisoning 5Athina England was unable to keep fluids down for three torturous days But the blame for the 2.4million cases of foodborne illness that occur every year in the UK does not lie solely with our favourite poultry. The truth is, salmonella and other foodborne bugs can be found all over. Just last month, 176 people fell ill and 12 were hospitalised after tucking into a bad batch of pork scratchings. In April, the Food Standards Agency investigated 99 cases of salmonella infection linked to melons, with galia, cantaloupe and honeydew varieties in the spotlight. Last year, more than 120 people were struck by the bug after eating Brazil nuts. In 2018, scientists at Aston University in Birmingham said any picnic food can pose a risk, and...

    New York Jets wide receiver Denzel Mims said he recently got food poisoning after eating salmon, which resulted in the loss of 20 pounds.

    FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — Denzel Mims is done with salmon. The New York Jets wide receiver doesn’t want to eat, touch or look at it ever again. Not after a bout with food poisoning in the spring caused him to drop 20 pounds — and miss some valuable time on the football field. “It took a big toll on me,” Mims said after practice Wednesday. After an up-and-down rookie year during which he dealt with a few hamstring injuries, Mims headed into this past offseason focused on being a lot better in 2021. He had 23 catches for 357 yards and no scores in nine games, but showed flashes of being the playmaker that made him a second-round pick out of Baylor. But the Jets made a coaching change in the offseason and out went that system. In came new offensive coordinator Mike LaFleur’s West Coast-style scheme and a new quarterback in first-rounder Zach Wilson. New York also signed Corey Davis in free agency and drafted Elijah Moore in the second round. Suddenly, Mims’ role appeared uncertain. And...
    Food poisoning is the order of the day, they are diseases caused by food contaminated with bacteria, viruses, parasites or toxins and usually present with symptoms that range from mild to severe. The main ones include cramps, nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea. In such a way that this type of poisoning occurs through the consumption of foods and beverages that have been contaminated, it is important to mention that these viruses are characterized by being highly resistant to environmental factors, such as lower pH (acidity) and heat. In some cases they are so powerful that its contagiousness persists for up to more than a month in food and water. Although it is common for this type of contagion to occur due to poor hygiene and poor practices in food preparation, there are also very relevant cases in the food industry. Recently the company Nature’s Touch Frozen Food Inc, has withdrawn from the market some batches of frozen mangoes associated with an outbreak of hepatitis A in Canada. So far it is known that at least three people in Quebec and...

Campylobacter infections usually happen when someone eats chicken that has not been cooked thoroughly, or the juices that come from it.
