Receding floodwaters and heavy rains across Pennsylvania are creating a perfect storm of conditions that have contributed to the highest level of West Nile virus activity in the mosquito population since the disease was first introduced in 2000. The disease, which has infected more than 150 people in the past six years, is on track to pose an unusually higher than normal risk this year and is widespread throughout the Commonwealth.  As of August 1st, West Nile virus had already been found in 51 Pennsylvania Counties.

 

HP Hood is voluntarily recalling a limited number of half-gallon (1.89 L) cartons of refrigerated Vanilla Almond Breeze because the product may contain milk, an allergen not listed on the label.  The product is safe to consume unless you have a milk allergy or sensitivity.  The recall only applies to refrigerated Vanilla Almond Breeze almond milk with a use-by date of September 2nd, 2018.  Consumers who purchased the product may return it to the place of purchase for a full refund or exchange. The recall is being initiated with the knowledge of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

 

PennDOT is once again partnering with local engineering firms to “Stuff the Barrel” with school supplies to help students and schools in need this year.  PennDOT is accompanied by Stiffler, McGraw & Associates, the EADS Group, Keller Engineers, and other partnering agencies.  The groups will collect school supplies until August 20th, and will then deliver supplies to the schools of need across the region.
