The Ultimate Ballpark Burger

25 03 2009

We all expect ballpark food to be unhealthy, but this is nuts

The West Michigan Whitecaps unveiled their new menu yesterday for the upcoming baseball season. It includes the Fifth Third Burger, which contains beef, lettuce, tomato, salsa, sour cream, chili and fritos on an eight-inch high sesame seed bun.

The burger weighs in at a whopping 4800 calories.  The cost is $20, but if you finish it in one sitting, you get a Fifth Third Burger T-shirt.

From WILX.com

Torres Hillsdale Country Cheese LLC is recalling its Asadero and Oaxaca soft Mexican-style cheeses due to possible listeria contamination.

The products were distributed to retailers and delis in Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Wisconsin.

The recalled cheeses were sold in 10-pound balls and 16- and 12-ounce plastic packages under the name “Aguas Calientes” and in 6-pound blocks shrink-wrapped in clear plastic under the name “El Jaliciense.”
