AM Briefing from Bowlersdesk.com for August 21 2013

Today is day three of Filner watch. San Diego’s infamous mayor is negotiating with the City Attorney, Civil Attorney Gloria Allred, and the city council about the conditions of his resignation. No one, but those in on the negotiations, know exactly what the discussions are about or what conditions Filner wants met for him to resign. The mediator, a retired federal judge, asked everyone to stay quiet.

However the mediation may become a moot point if the recall effort gathers enough signatures. Some think they will have the just under 102,000 signatures by the end of the week.

Will that change Filner’s negotiations?

Or will it make it more difficult to get him to out of office?

Loose seals or seams could result in product contamination by spoilage organisms or pathogens and lead to illness if consumed, according to Bumble Bee. The company said there have been no reports to date of any illness associated with these products.

“We must assure our consumers and retailers of a safe and quality product so we very much appreciate everyone’s part in disposing of the products with the specific codes indicated,” said Steve Mavity, Bumble Bee’s senior vice president of technical services and corporate quality assurance. “We’re voluntarily recalling products to ensure the…
