A complaint filed with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) alleges that Walmart has violated the law by advertising dozens of products online as "Made in the USA" when they actually contain "imported components."Walmart has about 2,000 products under the "Made in the USA" filter on its website, according to Truth in Advertising (TINA.org). Even though Walmart has millions of products for sale online, it claims that "almost two-thirds of its products are made in America," the consumer advocacy group says.TINA.org created a public database, which lists more than 40 of these items. They include food products, such as Boost protein shakes and various types of dog and cat food. An investigation conducted by the nonprofit revealed that these items do not comply with the FTC's "Made in the USA" standard, TINA.org told Eat This, Not That!. (Related: Grocery Shortages To Expect in 2021, According to Experts.)It's not the first time that TINA.org has filed a complaint against Walmart with the FTC. The organization first sent a letter to the federal agency in 2015 alleging that Walmart's website was "replete with false and deceptive" representations. In its most recent complaint, TINA.org asked the FTC to reopen a probe into Walmart and "take appropriate enforcement action.""Walmart's history of deceptive Made in USA marketing claims on its website now spans more than five years and is exacerbated by consumers' current need/desire to shop online during the global pandemic," the advocacy group wrote. "Obviously, as the world's largest retailer, the company's continuing failure to address these issues cannot be related to a lack of resources or sophistication."Though found to not be fully produced in the U.S., Walmart allegedly claims on its website that Boost Original Ready to Drink Rich Chocolate and Boost High Protein Ready to Drink Very Vanilla are "Made in the USA." Pure Balance High Protein Grain-Free Formula Salmon Recipe Food for Cats; Pure Blanace Grain-Free Wild&Free Turkey Recipe Dry Cat Food; and Nutro Natural Choice Adult Dry Dog Food Chicken and Brown Rice Recipe are also on the list of impacted products.There may be even more foods implicated in the controversy, according to TINA.org. The group hasn't reviewed all of the products affiliated with Walmart's "Made in the USA" filter.Eat This, Not That! has reached out to Walmart for comment.

According to Dr. Anthony Fauci, the chief medical advisor to the President and the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, one of the key issues with the country's COVID-19 pandemic response, is that the 50 states haven't been very united when it comes to their approach. While some opted to shut down immediately and issued mask mandates, others opted to keep businesses open and give people the freedom to mask up as they pleased. Each state has also approached other factors—including vaccine distribution and healthcare priorities—differently. Now, a new study using data collected from the U.S. Census Bureau, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, The COVID Tracking Project and rt.live, has ranked states from best to worst in terms of COVID safety, and this particular state landed dead last. Read on to find out—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Sure Signs You've Already Had Coronavirus. Arizona is the Least Safe State, According to the StudyThe Wallethub study used five metrics—vaccination rates, COVID-19 positivity, hospitalization, death, and transmission. Out of 50 states and the District of Columbia, Arizona was deemed the least safe state in the country, receiving a total score of 8.2. The state, which was hit particularly hard this winter, experienced the highest hospitalization and death rates. They ranked third to last in terms of transmission rate, the second to worst death rate, and the seventh worst vaccination rate. The safest state, according to the study, was Alaska, earning a high score of 95.43. They currently have the highest vaccination rate, the third lowest hospitalization rate, second lowest death rate, fifth lowest transmission rate. According to Jill Gonzalez, WalletHub analyst, one action is crucial to get states out of the danger zone. "The most important thing that residents can do to increase the safety of their community and state is to get vaccinated when they are eligible," she stated in a press release accompanying the study. "While the vaccines being offered have a high efficacy, how well they are able to curb the pandemic also depends on the share of the population that chooses to get vaccinated. Until we achieve widespread vaccination and get the pandemic under control, people should continue to wear masks in public and practice social distancing to achieve the highest level of safety possible." Gonzalez pointed out that Alabama, who had the highest death rate according to their findings and ranked second least safe state overall, is failing in the vaccination department. "In addition to having the highest death rate in the nation in the past week, at over 113 per million, Alabama also has the lowest share of the population age 16 and over who have received at least the first dose of the vaccine," she said. "Increasing the number of people vaccinated is essential for getting control of the pandemic."

“SNL” is back, now in its 46th season. The most recent new episode, which aired on December 19, was hosted by “Wonder Woman 1984” star Kristen Wiig, with Dua Lipa as the musical guest. That morning, Jim Carrey surprised everyone by announcing he was done playing Joe Biden, and the cold open sketch that night revealed a new Biden: cast member Alex Moffat. Carrey might not be the only recurring big name to be done with “SNL.” Since Donald Trump lost the election and is now all the way out of office, Alec Baldwin very well might be done playing Trump. He hasn’t appeared since the episode immediately after the election — he held up a little “Thank you” sign at the end of it — but with Trump’s impeachment trial still on the horizon, it seems very possible he’ll be back at least a couple times depending on how long that takes. While it wouldn’t be surprising if they do one more Trump cold open to check in on him now that he’s finally been kicked out of the White House, there’s certainly a distinct possibility that we will never see Baldwin’s Trump impersonation ever again. Also Read: 'SNL': Kate McKinnon as Dr. Fauci Explains the Government's Vaccine Plan (Video) This week, on Saturday, Jan. 23, there WILL NOT be a new episode of “SNL.” The next new episode will be on Jan. 30. NBC only just made that announcement, and despite the fact that we’re currently at the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic “SNL” will carry on as usual — it almost always comes back on the last weekend in January. There aren’t any more Saturday night NFL games this season, so NBC will be back to re-airing two old episodes this week. The first one, at 10 p.m., is the Nicole Kidman episode from all the way back in season 19. And at 11:30 we’ll get a rerun of the episode hosted by Timothee Chalamet from this season. You can be pretty sure this season of “SNL” be very political for the full stretch. While it’s no longer an election year, somehow the tense political situation in the U.S. has managed to ramp up from the fever pitch it was at in 2020, thanks to the mob of terrorists who invaded the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. “SNL” will, as it always does, follow the discourse. Also Read: 'SNL': Cecily Strong Brings Giuliani's Drunk Fraud Witness to Fart-Filled Cold Open (Video) The premiere episode came out hard with political commentary, with the debate cold open, a very political monologue from Chris Rock, and a stunned discussion of Trump’s COVID-19 infection from Michael Che on Weekend Update. And “SNL” hasn’t slowed down with its political content, with each cold open in season 46 being about the election, its aftermath or, as we saw in the last episode, the COVID-19 vaccine. After that debate sketch in the premiere, we got two other debate sketches, one for the VP candidates and one other for the presidential candidates, as well as one about the dueling town halls from when Trump was infected with COVID-19 and refused to submit to safety measures. The show’s writers were obviously pleased with the election results as well — the cold open sketch in the episode after Election Day was certainly celebratory. That sketch also parodied the episode after the 2016 election in which Kate McKinnon took the stage as Hillary Clinton and played piano while singing “Hallelujah” — this time, Baldwin, as Trump, performed a mournful version of “Macho Man.” Also Read: 'SNL' Newsmax Sports Parody Perfectly Sums Up Pro-Trump Conspiracy Logic (Video) “SNL” tried to drift away from that political focus during season 44, but certainly didn’t shy away from politics in season 45 — a season in which the actual Elizabeth Warren popped up to play herself in a sketch. The renewed focus on politics in season 45 was not just about mocking Trump, but also lampooning the circus that was the run up to the Democratic primaries. Not that the sketch show has in any way shied away from mocking Trump. The impeachment has certainly been a common topic for cold open sketches this season. There was the one where Baldwin’s Trump went through his contacts list trying to find a fixer who could make the impeachment stop, ending with a call to Liev Schreiber playing himself — Trump thought his character Ray Donovan, a fixer on the eponymous Showtime series, was actually a real person. There was also that one where “SNL” sent up the impeachment hearings by doing a “Days of Our Lives” parody that starred Jon Hamm. As for the madness with the Democratic primary, we had numerous big cameos in the debate sketches in season 45. The show tried out multiple different Joe Bidens last year, with Woody Harrelson taking up the role a couple times and Jason Sudeikis giving it a shot as well. They also brought in many other celebs to play other candidates in the Dem primary, including Lin-Manuel Miranda as Julian Castro, Larry David as Bernie Sanders, Rachel Dratch as Amy Klobuchar, Fred Armisen as Michael Bloomberg, and Will Ferrell as Tom Steyer. Maya Rudolph also played Kamala Harris a few times, and it was only natural that they’d keep her around for season 46. That’s a lot of cameos, and “SNL” actually managed to jam nearly all of those folks into a single sketch — a 12-minute debate parody from a late November episode. Miranda did not appear in that one, but he had previously popped up as Castro in October in a parody of the Democrats’ LGBTQ town hall that was moderated by Billy Porter in character as himself.

There's no disputing that bananas are a nutritious food—not only are they an excellent source of potassium, magnesium, and B vitamins, but they're also packed with filling fiber and cancer-fighting antioxidants. According to Harvard Health, the American Medical Association may have even named this fruit as the first "superfood" in the early 20th century. All that said, there is such a thing as eating too many bananas, and experts say it's impossible to miss the top warning sign that you're going overboard."The warning signs of eating too many bananas would be the same as eating too much of any food—uncomfortable fullness and digestive discomfort," says Andres Ayesta, MS, RD, CEO of Planos Nutrition.There are several reasons why you might experience some unpleasant GI side effects if you're overdosing on bananas every day. According to researchers at Makerere University, this fruit contains a significant amount of tannic acid, which is harmless in small doses but can cause a number of side effects in large amounts. In the short term, ingesting a lot of tannic acid can cause constipation—and in the long term, it can negatively impact your microbiome (or gut health)."Bananas can be constipating so if you are prone to that, track your symptoms," says Lauren Harris-Pincus, MS, RDN, author of The Protein-Packed Breakfast Club. "Anyone watching blood sugar or with digestive issues needs to monitor their diets more carefully.Related: Check out these 7 Healthiest Foods to Eat Right Now.Another factor to consider is that bananas contain a natural sugar alcohol called sorbitol, which can trigger laxative-like effects in your body when you consume a lot of it. Bananas are also packed with soluble fiber, a specific type of carbohydrate that is known to cause gas. When your body starts breaking down both the sorbitol and the soluble fiber together, it produces carbon dioxide, methane gas, and hydrogen—which may result in flatulence, among other uncomfortable GI effects. Particularly among people who are already dealing with digestive issues, eating large amounts of the soluble fiber found in bananas can lead to bloating and constipation."Fruits contain the sugar fructose, which may trigger symptoms in people with IBS," says Ayesta. "However, different people have different IBS triggers, so this is specific to the individual."Additionally, if you haven't been eating a fiber-rich diet, and suddenly started eating a lot of bananas—it takes a lot of work for your large intestine to break down the soluble fiber, and when it gets overloaded, you may experience gas and/or bloating.To be clear, eating bananas on a regular basis shouldn't cause these side effects unless you already have a digestive disorder. Interestingly, bananas—especially less ripe ones—are high in resistant starch, which promotes gut health while also warding off constipation and gas. Still, experts say it's best to eat them in moderation for several reasons."Eating too much of any single food is not a good idea because that means you are missing out on the variety of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and phytochemicals provided by eating an array of plant foods including fruits, veggies, nuts, beans, seeds, and whole grains," says Harris-Pincus. "I wouldn't recommend more than one banana a day for that reason. If you are eating so many bananas per day you are concerned, perhaps you should cut back."According to Ayesta, the main thing to ask yourself is whether the amount of bananas you're consuming is causing you to exceed your calorie or carbohydrate needs—or miss out on nutrients from other food sources."90% of the calories in bananas come from carbs, and it's important to have sources of protein and fat in your diet as well," he explains. "Also, bananas consumed without including a source of protein and fat as well can cause blood sugar spikes that may make you feel lethargic."For the sake of balance, Harris-Pincus recommends pairing bananas with Greek yogurt and nuts or cottage cheese and chia seeds—that way, you're getting a dose of healthy fat and protein as well.The bottom line? As long as the amount of bananas you're consuming allows you to meet your body's needs, and doesn't cause any noticeable digestive discomfort, then you should feel free to enjoy this superfood on the regular. So keep your portion sizes normal by whipping up one of these 10 Healthiest Banana Recipes.
