Associated Press Published 4:22 p.m. UTC Jul 17, 2018 Weston, Fla. – A Florida mother blames the death of her 15-year-old daughter on what she calls confusing packaging for Reese’s Chips Ahoy cookies. In a July 12 Facebook post, Kelli Travers-Stafford wrote that her daughter Alexi mistakenly ate one of the cookies at a friend’s house despite her peanut allergy, because the top of the familiar red packaging was peeled back, hiding the Reese’s label. She says Alexi felt tingling in her mouth on June 25 and they administered two Epipens but Alexi quickly went into anaphylactic shock, stopped breathing and died within an hour and a half of eating the cookie. “As a mother who diligently taught her the ropes of what was okay to ingest and what was not, I feel lost and angry because she knew her limits and was aware of familiar packaging, she knew what “safe” was,” Travers-Stafford said in the post. “A small added indication on the … [Read more...] about Mom blames teen’s death on packaging for peanut cookies

Christina Hall Detroit Free Press Published 6:03 p.m. UTC Jul 5, 2018 It might be the biggest mystery in Berkley in a long time. Someone has been playing a game of hide-and-seek at the Berkley Public Library with the trilogy of "Fifty Shades" movies and two other films on DVD. But the library says what the person did isn't a game — it's censorship — and it's not going to tolerate that. "One of the tenets of being a library and being a librarian is access to all information. You can't pick and choose what you're going to carry. If patrons want that, we have to provide that information, even if it is a feature film," said Lauren Arnsman, a reference librarian at the library. [Want more stories from southeast Oakland County?

Chevrolet’s Find New Roads Experience recently kicked off in Las Vegas and the company reportedly used the dealer convention to tease the highly-anticipated Corvette C8. According to a post on Corvette Forum by Nate Chandler, Chevrolet showed two photos of the upcoming model and described it as a “super car.” The pictures didn’t reveal much but Chandler said it “definitely looked mid-engined” and had a front bumper that resembled the Corvette ZR1. That’s not much to go on but previous spy photos have shown the Corvette will have a rakish windscreen, a double bubble roof and LED lighting units. The model also appears to have two buttresses which connect to the cabin and are separated by a cover which hides its mid-engine. There’s no word on what will power the model but Cadillac president Johan de Nysschen recently used the New York Auto Show to shut down speculation that the Corvette would use the company’s new twin-turbo … [Read more...] about Chevrolet Corvette C8 Reportedly Teased At Dealer Convention
