Today, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released a statement that a salmonella outbreak that has been linked to 73 people over 31 states is actually linked to Kellogg’s Honey Smacks cereal. Of the 73 people, 24 have been hospitalized. While not all boxes of Honey Smacks are affected, Kellogg has announced a recall of 15.3-ounc and 23-ounce packages of the cereal that have a “best if used by” date of June 14, 2018 through June 14, 2019.
Surgery Selfies? Chinese doctors and nurses say “sure.”
Executives and a team of medical staff from a Chinese hospital have been sanctioned for taking group photos, called “selfies,” next to unconscious patients following surgery. Even more disturbing, is that one of the photos appears to have been taken during surgery, as two doctors are leaning over the patient with medical instruments in their hands.
What are the sanctions for this egregious offense? Three hospital executives were fired, and the other staff in the photo have been docked three months’ pay.
