A consortium of small farms and consumer advocacy groups has just filed a complaint with the FTC alleging that food production giant Cargill engages in regular coercion of partnered farmers and misleads the public with inaccurate narratives of its products. More specifically, the complaint claims that Cargill's turkeys sold under the Shady Brook Farms and Honeysuckle White brands are not raised by "independent family farmers," even though it says so on the label.Often referred to as an "agribusiness giant," Cargill is not a small operation. For context, Cargill, which was founded in 1865 and currently employs 186,000 people, is the second-largest privately held company in America today, according to Forbes, with $2.82 billion in earnings in the 2019 fiscal year. (Related: 8 Grocery Items That May Soon Be in Short Supply.)According to the complaint just filed with the Federal Trade Commission, Cargill is also not a fair partner to any independent family farming operation. Central to the "Complaint requesting action to enjoin the dissemination of false or deceptive advertising by Cargill, Inc." is the assertion that: "Cargill makes numerous representations that lead consumers to believe the turkeys used in its Products are raised by 'independent family farmers.' Cargill uses its 'independent family farmers' narrative to imply that the Products have far-reaching benefits for workers, animals, and the environment."The complaint, which was filed by the Richman Law Group on behalf of a partnership consisting of the nonprofit organizations Family Farm Action Alliance, Venceremos, Mighty Earth, Animal Equality, Organic Consumers Association, and Socially Responsible Agricultural Project, also accuses Cargill of routinely engaging in strong-arm tactics when dealing with its suppliers.Family Farm Action Alliance Vice President Angela Huffman said in a statement that the company "wields its corporate power to abuse contract turkey growers and slaughterhouse workers, animals, and the land. Cargill's advertising pulls the wool over consumers' eyes while stealing the market from independent family farmers."The filing also assails Cargill for claiming to be a humane and eco-friendly company, when allegedly, the "turkeys are kept in intensive, unsanitary confinement where they are systematically mutilated and selectively bred to have debilitating health problems." The filing also notes that the company is "consistently ranked as one of the largest polluters of air and waterways in the country."For more grocery shopping news, make sure to sign up for our newsletter.
Because the COVID-19 pandemic is far from over, many restaurants still face an uncertain future. While some are currently shutting their doors—either voluntarily or because of government orders—others like California Pizza Kitchen are starting to make a comeback following an unprecedented year.CPK just announced the completion of a debt-for-equity transaction and the elimination of $220 million of debt only three months after filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in July. With its financial restructuring completed, the company is turning its focus to investing in its digital presence and marketing, expanding its global franchise footprint, continuing to update its menu with healthy pies (like the new BBQ Chicken Pizza), and building upon its off-premise success during the pandemic. The chain also announced that it would not close any additional restaurants.Related: The Saddest Restaurant Closures In Your State"We are excited to embark on this next chapter for CPK and build on our current business momentum," CEO Jim Hyatt said in a statement. "We are a stronger and healthier company as a result of the restructuring, and we look forward to delivering more of our innovative, California-inspired cuisine to our loyal CPK guest community."The year has been quite the roller coaster for the fast-casual pizza chain. Sales fell a whopping 77% in the spring before the bankruptcy declaration. An auction to sell the company's assets was canceled in early October because there were no qualified bidders. The financial restructuring followed.To stay up to date on all restaurant bankruptcy and closure news, sign up for our daily newsletter!

And why not test one out that's fit for a queen?The Royal Family just shared their recipe for a traditional Christmas pudding—straight from their kitchens in the U.K."Today is #StirupSunday: traditionally the day when home cooks 'stir up' their Christmas pudding mixture," the family tweeted over the weekend.

It is becoming increasingly clear that the availability of a vaccine effective in preventing COVID-19 infections is going to be a reality in the near future. However, once the first vaccine has been approved by the FDA for emergency use authorization and the first doses are available, who is going to get the first shots? During an interview with Andrea Mitchell of MSNBC, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's leading infectious disease expert and Director of the National Institutes of Health, revealed who will be first line for the COVID-19 vaccine. Read on, and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Sure Signs You've Already Had Coronavirus.Dr. Fauci Said the "Highest Priority" People Get it in December"By the time we get into December, we'll be able to have doses available for people who are judged to be at the highest priority," Fauci revealed. In another interview with PBS, Fauci revealed that those "higher priority groups" would be determined "according to the recommendation of the CDC." Per the CDC in addition to age, there are a number of underlying medical conditions that would deem an adult of any age to be at an increased risk for severe illness from the virus that causes COVID-19. These include cancer, chronic kidney disease, COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), heart conditions, such as heart failure, coronary artery disease, or cardiomyopathies, immunocompromised state (weakened immune system) from solid organ transplant, obesity (body mass index [BMI] of 30 kg/m2 or higher but < 40 kg/m2), severe obesity (BMI ≥ 40 kg/m2), pregnancy, sickle cell disease, smoking, and type 2 diabetes mellitus.According to the AP, an expert panel advising the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is also considering giving high priority to workers in essential industries."Once a vaccine gets a green light from the Food and Drug Administration, the panel will look at clinical trial data on side effects and how people of various ages, ethnicities and health statuses responded. That will determine the panel's recommendations to the CDC on how to prioritize shots," they explain. RELATED: COVID Symptoms Usually Appear in This Order, Study FindsDr. Fauci Says We Can All Get the Vaccine by April or MayFauci is hopeful that "by the time you get into the middle, towards the end of the first quarter of 2021, you will have accounted for and vaccinated those who are in the higher priority groups." Then, by April or early May, the vaccine will be more readily available to the general public.

Walmart reopened two of its Supercenter locations in Chicago over the weekend which had temporarily shut down this summer amid civil unrest. The extensive remodels being unveiled at the pair of Supercenters include the additions of adjacent Walmart Health centers.The residents of the Windy City now have access to two of the city's four Walmart Supercenters located in the neighborhoods of Austin and Chatham.
