Tyson Foods Recalls Nearly 8.5 Million Pounds Of Ready-To-Eat Chicken Due To Possible Listeria Contamination

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – Tyson Foods, Inc. on Saturday issued a recall of nearly 8.5 million pounds of its frozen, fully cooked chicken due to concerns over possible exposure to listeria, a harmful bacteria. The affected products were produced between Dec. 26, 2020, and April 13, 2021, at a company plant in Dexter, Missouri. The products were distributed to retailers and foodservice companies nationwide and in Puerto Rico, Tyson Foods said. Tyson Foods said each package of the affected products will have the establishment code P-7089. In total, the company recalled 30 different ready-to-eat products, which can be viewed here. Any of these products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, its Food Safety and Inspection Service learned on June 9 of two people who had become ill with listeriosis. The department said it found evidence linking the illnesses to pre-cooked chicken at Tyson Foods. Further investigation identified three more illnesses, including one death, between April 6 and June 5. During that investigation, the USDA said it collected two pre-cooked chicken samples from two establishments,…

Kemp’s Sacrifice Fly Lifts A’s Over Red Sox 7-6 In 12

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Tony Kemp hit a game-winning sacrifice fly to cap a three-run 12th inning, and the Oakland Athletics rallied past the Boston Red Sox 7-6 on Saturday to snap their eight-game winning streak. Sean Murphy and Seth Brown singled to start the bottom of the 12th before Jed Lowrie’s tying double off Matt Andriese (2-3), who couldn’t close out a game that lasted 4 hours, 24 minutes. “It was the most spirited game of the year,” said A’s manager Bob Melvin, whose club had lost two in a row and five of seven. Oakland won despite stranding 17 runners. Marwin González put Boston ahead on a single with one out in the top of the 12th before a single by Kiké Hernández made it 6-4. “It was a crazy game,” Red Sox manager Alex Cora said. González came through against winner J.B. Wendelken (1-0) to score Rafael Devers, who started the inning on second base as the teams went extra innings for a second straight day. Hernández had a big game for a second straight day, providing insurance in the 12th after…

Sacramento Search And Rescue Team Sends 2 To Florida

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – Two members of the Sacramento Urban Search and Rescue team arrived in Florida Saturday morning to help with the recovery efforts at the Surfside condominium collapse. Demolition workers are planning to bring down the rest of a partially collapsed building in South Florida ahead of an approaching storm that could cause the rest of the structure to come crashing down, experts warn. A top Miami-Dade fire official tells relatives of people missing in the rubble that workers plan to demolish the remainder of the building as soon as Sunday. Gov. Ron DeSantis says it is structurally unsound and bringing it down will protect rescuers. The confirmed death toll from the collapse has risen to 24 with the discovery of two more bodies in the rubble. Sacramento Fire Department structural engineers Zachary Siviglia and Jon Sampson will assist with the recovery efforts, according to a Department spokesperson. The pair is part of the Urban Search and Rescue California Taskforce 7 based in Sacramento and will work directly with the Federal Emergency Management Agency in Florida. Their deployment to Seaside was approved by the…

U.S. Capitol off-limits to public visitors on Independence Day

As it has been for nearly 16 months, longer than any time in the nation’s history, the U.S. Capitol is closed to most public visitors. The one-two punch of the coronavirus pandemic that shuttered the Capitol’s doors in the spring of 2020 and the deadly insurrection by then-President Donald Trump’s supporters on Jan. 6 has left the icon of American democracy unopen to all but a select few. As the rest of the nation emerges this July Fourth holiday from the pandemic for cookouts and fireworks that President Joe Biden is encouraging from the White House, the people’s house faces new threats of violence, virus variants and a more difficult moment. “What is heartbreaking about it is that the Capitol has been forever our symbol of democracy — enduring through the Civil War, through world wars, through strife of all kinds,” said Jane L. Campbell, president and CEO of the United States Capitol Historical Society. Congressional leaders are working intensely to try to resume public tours at the Capitol in some form, but any reopening probably will come with new protocols for health and safety for the millions of…

Austin Slater’s mammoth go-ahead home run leads SF Giants to comeback win

PHOENIX — Austin Slater looked completely and totally lost. Entering Saturday’s game at Chase Field, the Giants outfielder was 0-for-his-last-14 with six strikeouts, a handful of lazy groundouts and several uninspiring at-bats that suggested his next consistent stretch of playing time might come for the Triple-A Sacramento River Cats. Slater didn’t have an extra-base hit in June, so when the right-handed hitter stepped to the plate against Arizona Diamondbacks southpaw Ryan Buchter in the eighth inning on Saturday, it wasn’t a drop-everything-and-watch-this moment. Until it was. With a go-ahead, two-run home run that shot through the stratosphere, Slater delivered the game-saving blast the Giants needed to secure a 6-5 victory. Slater’s 463-foot home run out to left center field marked the longest home run hit by a Giants player this season, besting the previous high of 460 feet set when Slater hit a game-tying home run in the eighth inning at Chase Field in a 5-4 San Francisco win on May 26. “It felt great,” Slater said. “Not only individually but I had a chance earlier in the game to drive in some runs and…

A’s Mitch Moreland removed from lineup before first pitch for ‘non-baseball related issue’

OAKLAND — Mitch Moreland was penciled into Saturday’s lineup in the Oakland A’s walk-off win against the Boston Red Sox as the designated hitter, but was replaced without recording an at-bat by Frank Schwindel. The A’s faced Red Sox right-handed pitcher Garrett Richards on Saturday, a game Moreland would typically participate in. Manager Bob Melvin said Moreland exited the game for non-baseball related issues and will not play on Sunday. “He came out with a non-baseball related issue, that’s as far as I’ll go with that,” Melvin said. No roster move was made immediately, but outfield prospect Greg Deichmann was pulled from the Las Vegas Aviators game early on Saturday. Moreland was batting .239 with two home runs and seven RBI in 25 games since he was reinstated from the injured list on May 27. Moreland missed time with inflamed costochondral junction of his left rib. Moreland, typically used as a designated hitter against right-handed pitchers, is slashing .238/.286/.388 with a .673 OPS.

Oakland A’s walk-off in the 12th in thrilling extra-inning win against Boston Red Sox

OAKLAND — Tony Kemp said Saturday’s game was the worst baseball game he’s played in his career. But the A’s couldn’t have won without him. Kemp lifted his arms half way and looked to the blustering skies after he hit the walk-off sacrifice fly in the 10th inning to seal the Oakland A’s 7-6 win over the Boston Red Sox in the 12th inning. Once Seth Brown slid into home plate safely, Kemp’s teammates lifted him and doused him in water. After 4 hours and 24 minutes of wire-to-wire baseball, the A’s were too fried to go all-out. “That was a relief. Leading up to that point in the game, thinking back that was probably the worst game I played in the big leagues. Yeah. Just a lot of thinking going on there,” Kemp said. “Such a long game. Sometimes you help your team win and sometimes you help your team lose. For a long time in that game, I was on the unfortunate end of that.” Kemp, too, couldn’t quite process the win, but a perfect baseball story played out for him. After committing…

Angels Defeat Orioles 4-1 To Extend Winning Streak To 3

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Alex Cobb allowed only one run in a season-high 7 2/3 innings, David Fletcher extended his hitting streak to 17 games and the Los Angeles Angels beat the Baltimore Orioles 4-1 Saturday night for their third straight win. It is the longest outing by an Angels starter since Griffin Canning went eight innings on Aug. 30 last season against Seattle. Cobb (6-3) — who was with the Orioles from 2018-20 before being traded to Los Angeles prior to spring training — allowed four hits and struck out five with only one walk. The right-hander also gave a lift to a Halos rotation that has struggled. Only one time in the previous six games had a Los Angeles starter made it to at least the fifth inning. Fletcher’s leadoff single in the first gave him a new career high hitting streak. It also tied him with Houston’s José Altuve (May 5-23) for the longest in the AL this season. Fletcher is batting .388 (26/67) with six doubles and eight RBI’s during his hitting streak. Major League home run leader Shohei Ohtani, who…

Counselors work to ease grief over Miami condo building collapse

After Lauren Miller lost her father in January to COVID-19, her longtime friend Jay Kleiman advised her not to wallow in grief and to seek counseling to ease her pain. Now she finds herself grieving again — only this time for Kleiman, one of scores of people believed to be underneath the rubble of a 12-story condominium tower in Florida that collapsed over a week ago, killing at least 24. “I’m sure he’d tell me: ‘It’s OK to be sad — this is very, very sad — but you have to move forward, and you have to be strong,’” Miller said, her voice cracking. While hundreds of rescuers continue their desperate search for survivors within the remains of the Champlain Towers South in Surfside, a smaller cadre of mental health counselors have also been deployed to help families and other loved ones confront overwhelming feelings of grief, fear and anger. For every person still unaccounted for — 121 as of Saturday — many more lives have been turned upside down as people await word on loved ones or answers that will explain what brought about…
