Today’s first course?
In a national effort to stop the passing of the legislation known as the DARK Act, an anti-GMO-labeling bill, more than 4,000 chefs have signed a petition calling on members of the U.S. Senate to reject the bill. In its latest form, the bill would not require the mandatory labeling of genetically engineered foods, despite the fact that an overwhelming majority of Americans — whether Republican, Democratic, or Independent — support GMO labeling. The DARK Act would also block states like Vermont, Connecticut, and Maine from enacting GMO labeling laws that have already been approved by voters.
And Corona is recalling some of its 12-ounce clear bottles because they may contain small pieces of glass, which could be a real buzzkill. The company has listed out the production codes for the impacted bottles, which are sold in 12- and 18-packs, and includes images to help customers locate the codes on the boxes and bottles. The recall was announced after routine inspections of two Anheuser-Busch InBev breweries. There have been no reported injuries related to the bottles affected by the recall.
OddFellows, the New York City ice cream shop that specializes in inventive flavors like extra virgin olive oil, miso cherry, and absinthe chocolate chip, is celebrating St. Patrick’s Day the right way — with plenty of Irish whiskey. Starting today OddFellows will introduce a flight of three Irish whiskey ice creams for $10. The flavors include the Dead Rabbit Irish Coffee ice cream, the Knappogue Castle 12-Year-Old Single Malt Whiskey ice cream; and the Little Boo Boo Bakery burnt marshmallow ice cream. The Irish whiskey ice creams will be available at OddFellows until the end of April.
