There may be 2,000 active serial killers in the U.S. right now. Thomas Hargrove has been archiving homicides for years through his Murder Accountability Project. Through his experience, he came up with an algorithm that found patterns in recent unsolved murders linked to at least one other murder through DNA. This allowed him to estimate the number of unsolved cases in the U.S. at any given time. According to The New Yorker, he believes that the number of active serial killers in the U.S. is around 2,000.

A Wisconsin woman has sued food giant Kraft Heinz, saying the packaging of its Bagel Bites Pizza Snacks amounts to fraud. Kaitlyn Huber’s federal lawsuit says a box featuring the Real Dairy seal, and the large type announcing mozzarella cheese and tomato sauce, are “false, deceptive and misleading.” The suit, which seeks class-action status on behalf of anyone who bought the bites in Wisconsin, asks the court to make Kraft Heinz correct its packaging and for unspecified damages. The suit states: “Wisconsin consumers want real mozzarella cheese in pizza because they value (1) its soft, moist texture, (2) its milky, yet tangy taste and (3) its high protein and relatively low calories and sodium compared to other cheeses.” The suggestion that Bagel Bites Pizza Snacks are made with tomato sauce is also bogus, according to Huber’s suit. Huber’s lawsuit claims Wisconsin and federal regulations require any purported mozzarella that contains added food starch — in place of milk — to be labeled as imitation mozzarella cheese. A spokesperson for Kraft Heinz said the company did not have any comment about Huber’s lawsuit. In a court filing in a very similar suit filed in New York earlier this year, lawyers for Heinz Kraft argued that because some mozzarella is used in the “cheese blend” cited as an ingredient in Bagel Bites, it is not “imitation” mozzarella under federal law.
MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by BetterResultsAdvertising.com
snails, fresh leaves, and a quarter-pound of beef were found this
month - not on a plate or grocery store but inside luggage at a Texas
airport. A passenger arriving from Nigeria initially disclosed the
dried beef in her suitcase, before adding 15 giant African land
snails to her declaration. The snails, which were handed over to the
US Department of Agriculture (USDA), can cause meningitis in humans.
Giant African land snails are illegal to own in the U.S. without a
permit, as they are among the most damaging snails in the world. They
are native to West Africa, where they are considered a delicacy. But
they're also known to carry a parasite with a rather menacing name:
rat lungworm. This parasite can cause meningitis, an inflammatory
illness that affects the brain and spinal cord. More than 2,800 cases
of the disease have been reported across 30 countries, according to
the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In most
cases, infected people have mild symptoms, like headaches, a stiff
neck, and nausea - or no symptoms at all. The 15 giant snails were
seized by border agents. (https://bbc.in/3i7nGlw)
