One crisp winter morning in Sweden, a cute little girl named Greta woke up to a perfect world, one where there were no petroleum products ruining the earth. She tossed aside her cotton sheet and wool blanket and stepped out onto a dirt floor covered with willow bark that had been pulverized with rocks. “What’s this?” she asked.
“Pulverized willow bark,” replied her fairy godmother.
“What happened to the carpet?” she asked.
“The carpet was nylon, which is made from butadiene and hydrogen cyanide, both made from petroleum,” came the response.
Greta smiled, acknowledging that adjustments are necessary to save the planet, and moved to the sink to brush her teeth where instead of a toothbrush, she found a willow, mangled on one end to expose wood fibre bristles.
“Your old toothbrush?” noted her godmother, “Also nylon.”
The fast-food chain Wendy’s has decided to pull the lettuce from all its sandwiches in Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania over concerns relating to an E. coli outbreak.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is investigating whether people who recently reported falling ill after eating Wendy’s are connected with 37 people that were also reported sickened by an E. coli outbreak.
The CDC is also looking into whether romaine lettuce is the source of the outbreak and whether the romaine lettuce supplied at Wendy’s was also served or sold at other businesses.Ticker Security Last Change Change % WEN THE WENDY’S CO. 21.15 -0.18 -0.84%
