The opening of the first Trader Joe's store in Boise, Idaho, has become the latest front in a campaign to get the Monrovia company to stop selling meat from animals raised with antibiotics. Consumers Union, which publishes Consumers Report magazine, took out a full page advertisement in the Idaho Statesman on Monday to warn about growing antibiotic resistance from industrial farming and urge consumers to demand Trader Joe's sell only antibiotic-free meat. “The antibiotics we depend on to treat infectious diseases are losing their power,” said Jean Halloran, director of food policy initiatives for Consumers Union. “We need to stop wasting these critical medications on healthy livestock. Trader Joe's can take an important stand for public health by no longer selling meat from animals that have been routinely fed antibiotics.” [Updated 11:33 a.m.]

"We have put together an investment group to purchase the land and take over as a new operator," David Evans, founder and chief executive of Marin Sun Farms, said Thursday.

The heart can be so tender. But as any cook can tell you, it can also be tough - an unforgiving meat that seizes up when you leave it an instant too long on the grill. Do not torture our hearts over a thin, smoky flame. Contemplate instead a fine dinner, with the one you love, of nature's most amorous organ. Why not eat your heart out tonight? Corazón y Miel is a dim, tuck 'n' roll gastrobar in Bell. Coraz ó n y miel , hearts and honey, is its signature bowl of warm, seared chicken hearts in a sweet, honeyed vinaigrette, tossed with a few slivers of onion, a kind of organ-meat escabeche . Like the restaurant, the hearts are an unlikely source of deliciousness.
