The government took a popular sandwich maker to court for failing to produce safe products, according to court documents filed in Michigan.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is trying to shut down the tuna sandwich maker in Detroit, for not following safe procedures when producing products.

A Justice Department attorney asked the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan, for an injunction against Scotty’s Inc., which is located at 3426 Street.

Scotty’s Inc. does business as Bruce Enterprises, and makes sandwiches for convenience stores, gas station and police departments in Michigan and Ohio.

According to the complaint, the company ignored several orders by the FDA to write and implement a safe tuna sandwiches production plan.

The business also failed to make, package and store their sandwiches under conditions that minimize the possibility of contamination.

The FDA however, said that it is not aware of any complaints or reports of illness.

The company said that it is shocked by the FDA complaint as they did not produce any tuna sandwiches for more than a year.

The Justice Department wants the injunction to last until the company complies with all food and health regulations.

13-year-old girl dies after being forced to undergo female circumcision

 
By: Chan Yuan

A teen girl died after she was forced to undergo a female circumcision, police in Egypt said.

Now, the doctor and father of the 13-year-old girl who were charged with murder, were acquitted by a judge in Cairo.

The doctor claimed that Suhair al-Bata'a, died by an allergy to penicillin and not as a result of the circumcision. Women’s rights activists have expressed disappointment with the outcome of the trial.

They hoped that a guilty verdict would stop female circumcision in the country where 90 percent of women are mutilated.

Female circumcision is illegal under the law, but the practice remains alarmingly widespread. It was the first time a doctor has been brought to trial in the country on charges of carrying out the procedure.

The father of the girl, Mohamed al-Bata'a, was charged as an accomplice.

Dr. Raslan Fadl denied performing the circumcision. He said that he was just removing a wart from Suhair al-Bata'a, and he only made a small incision.

The doctor, who also circumcised another girl in the family, offered the father of the girl 20,000 pounds ($2,800) to keep quiet about her death.

The evidence provided by forensics showed that what happened to the girl was a circumcision, prosecutors said. The judge did not give a reason for his not guilty verdict.

"I hoped that the doctor would be held accountable for my daughter’s death. I wanted justice for my daughter," the girl's mother, Hasanat Naeem Fawzy, said.
