Good thing, they’re going to play back-to-back games. They’re the hottest team after us.”Rain or Shine stayed a game behind Phoenix, after James Yap and Norbert Torres combined for nine of 15 shooting from beyond the arc to rally past NorthPort, 107-100, in the second game.

We’ve yet to face San Miguel or teams like Ginebra, Magnolia—the top teams.

Banquet pot pie production halted by ConAgra

first_imgPot pies need to be cooked longer in microwaves that have less power, Childs said. A good sign the pot pie is done is when steam rises out of it. The company already is planning to revise the cooking directions on its pot-pie packages to clarify how long the pies should be cooked in different microwaves.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Earlier this year, ConAgra had to recall all of its peanut butter because it was linked to a different salmonella outbreak. The USDA said the Marshall, Mo., plant made Banquet and store-brand pot pies. All of the pot pies made at the plant in question have “P-9” printed on the side of the box as part of a code above the use-by date. Federal officials said consumers shouldn’t throw away or eat the pot pies until the Food Safety and Inspection Service can determine the source of the salmonella contamination and verify proper cooking instructions. ConAgra is offering refunds, but no recall of pot pies was being planned Tuesday. Spokeswoman Stephanie Childs said ConAgra is confident in the safety of its chicken and turkey pot pies when all the cooking instructions on the package are followed. OMAHA, Neb. – ConAgra Foods Inc. voluntarily stopped production Tuesday at the Missouri plant that makes its Banquet pot pies after health officials said the pies may be linked to 139 cases of salmonella in 30 states. ConAgra officials believe the company’s pies are safe if they’re cooked properly, but the Omaha-based company told consumers Tuesday not to eat its pot pies until the government and company investigations are complete. The U.S. Department of Agriculture also issued a health alert Tuesday afternoon to warn consumers about the link between the company’s product and the salmonella cases. The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has been tracking reports of the salmonella cases since Oct. 3. A CDC spokeswoman said the largest numbers of salmonella cases had been reported in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Missouri. Salmonella sickens about 40,000 people a year in the U.S. and kills about 600. Most of the deaths are among people with weaker immune systems such as the elderly or very young. It can cause diarrhea, fever, dehydration, abdominal pain and vomiting. Most cases of salmonella poisoning are caused by undercooked eggs and chicken. last_img read more
