No, this is not a post about my fond memories of a snack food. The booty,

often found in co-ops and health food stores, is potentially linked to 51 cases of salmonella. So, if you have any, get rid of it. And if you see it in a store, please let the manager know about the recall so that they can safeguard their patrons. Thanks!

In America, we celebrate our nation's independence in a variety of strange, food-related ways. For instance, we create egregious dishes, the only excuse for

which is that the ingredients are in the colors of our flag (yeah, yeah, I'm a snot because I don't like cake mix, pie filling, cool whip or Jello...I know). On July 4, we also celebrate our world renown gluttony with a Nathan's Famous hotdog-eating contest on Coney Island. But this year, there's a twist. Six-time champion, Takeru Kobayashi is suffering from a mysterious jaw injury that may make him unable to consume the 59-or-so hot dogs it will take to win the competition. The New York Times has the scoop.

Also in the Times, an article about restaurants and intellectual property. Interesting stuff.
