OK Foods recalls chicken products over possible metal contamination | WTOP

(WASHINGTON) — OK Foods Inc. is recalling about 933,272 pounds of its breaded chicken products over fears that they may have been contaminated with metal and other materials, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said.

The recall was initiated after five consumer complaints were issued over metal objects found in the chicken producer’s “ready-to-eat” chicken products, the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service said Thursday.

“After an internal investigation, the firm identified the affected product and determined that the objects in all the complaints came from metal conveyor belting,” a USDA statement said of the Oklahoma City establishment.

The statement added, “There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products” and that the products “should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.”

The recall affects products dated from Dec. 19, 2016, to March 7, 2017.

The company did not immediately respond to ABC News’ request for comment.

THE MEMO: Recriminations fly with Trump’s health vote in peril | TheHill

Recriminations have begun flying among Republicans even before the House votes Friday on a plan that aims to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.

President Trump and House Republican leadership are adamant that the bill must pass. But that outcome was in deep doubt on Friday morning, as lawmakers on both flanks of the GOP expressed skepticism.

GOP-sponsored bill may help companies obtain your genetic information | Fox News

House Democrats and a number of privacy advocacy groups came out against a House GOP-sponsored bill that would reportedly make it easier for employers to gain access to genetic information about their employees and their families.

The New York Times reported Friday that the bill-- called the Preserving Employee Wellness Programs Act--  may also significantly increase the costs if someone chooses not to participate in a company wellness program that requires the genetic information.

Fortune magazine summed up the bill: it “would essentially allow companies with workplace wellness programs to demand your genetic information (or force you to pay a big penalty.)”

The bill was introduced by Rep. Virginia Foxx, R-N.C., the chairwoman of the House Committee on Education and the Workforce. The bill reportedly passed its first test in a committee vote that went straight down party line. The bill is still under review by other House committees.

Obamacare repeal takes first step forward

House Republicans early Thursday morning took a crucial step toward fulfilling their party’s longstanding pledge to dismantle Obamacare, but Democrats showed they would use delay tactics to slow down the House's sprint toward repeal.

Long and rancorous markups of the House's repeal bill dragged into a second day on Thursday. Tax-writers on the House Ways and Means Committee this morning completed a nearly 18-hour legislative session by scrapping a series of tax-related provisions in the law, including the mandate that most Americans buy insurance or pay a penalty. Meanwhile, the Energy and Commerce Committee is still slogging through its markup of other aspects of the repeal legislation, almost 24 hours after it started.

Does GOP’s health plan keep Trump’s promises?

The new House Republican legislation to repeal and replace -ObamaCare gives President Trump a chance to fulfill one of his most touted campaign promises.

House GOP releases plan to repeal, replace Obamacare

Congressional Republicans finally unveiled their broad plan for replacing Obamacare, which includes killing the requirement that most Americans health insurance or pay a fine.

The GOP proposal also would end or radically change other aspects of the Affordable Care Act, including terminating Obamacare taxes on the wealthy, while keeping some of its more popular provisions.

Additionally, it would alter the system by which many customers get financial aid to buy insurance on the individual plan market.
