Why There Might Be A Turkey Shortage This Thanksgiving, The FDA Cracks Down On Teen Vaping, And There Will Be A New Batman

La Crosse, WI, United States / KICKS 106.3

Hurricane Florence could mean a shortage of Thanksgiving Turkeys. The monster storm is headed toward North Carolina, which is the number one turkey state in the country. Many of Butterball’s processing plants, hatcheries and feed mills are right in the storm’s projected path. According to the National Turkey Federation, stores will try to stock more frozen turkeys to help to offset some of the projected shortage.

The Food and Drug Administration announced Wednesday that the agency is cracking down on teen vaping by targeting popular brands that make flavored e-cigarettes. The FDA ordered five companies—Juul, Vuse, MarkTen, blu e-cigs, and Logic—to submit plans to tackle underage use of their products within 60 days. Should any of these companies fail to meet the deadline, the federal agency is threatening to pull their products from the shelves. The FDA also said it would send 1,100 warnings to retailers, including 7-Eleven and Walgreens stores, along with 131 fines for selling e-cigarettes to minors. Source:

And it looks like Ben Affleck is hanging up the cape, according to a report that the actor is leaving the Batman franchise. The New York Post reports that Affleck’s exit comes on the heels of another departure from the DC universe, according to The Hollywood Reporter, which claims Henry Cavill will no longer be Superman. However, Cavill’s agent, Dany Garcia, tweeted that the actor isn’t quitting Superman. Now everyone wants to know who the next Batman will be. Studio insiders told The Hollywood Reporter that execs want to hit a “reset” button on their superhero films. Source:
