The outbreak cased ten cases in four states, including three deaths in Kansas. This is the largest criminal penalty following a conviction in a food safety case. When Texas state officials first notified Blue Bell that its ice cream tested positive, the company did not recall the products, it just removed them from shelves.        Nike's Colin Kaepernick "Icon" jersey is sold out. The"number 7 jersey" sold out just one minute after it went on sale. The release of the jersey marked four years since the former NFL quarterback dropped to one knee during the national anthem as he protested systemic racism and social injustice.        Burger King is printing the Whopper's ingredients right on its wrapper.
