The 12 days of Whataburger…

If you’re lucky enough to be in Texas, there’s still time to sign up for the 12 days of Whataburger at the official 12 days of Whataburger site. You’ll get 12 coupons emailed to you over the next 12 days for free food and free Whataburger items. Free is a pretty good deal in my opinion.

The first coupon is already out. Its a “CELEBRATE WITH A FREE MEDIUM FRENCH FRIES!” coupon that’s only valid on December 2nd. You can get it by clicking here.

I found out that the second coupon will be “CELEBRATE WITH A FREE TAQUITO!” that’s only valid on December 4th. You can get that one by clicking here.

I also found the third coupon, and it’s the last one they seem to have posted right now. It’s a “CELEBRATE WITH A FREE FRIED PIE!” that’s only valid December 6th. You can get that one by clicking here.

I’ve been told the closest thing to Whataburger up North is something called In-N-Out. Sorry, but In-N-Out ain’t no Whataburger in my opinion. If you are not from Texas and you haven’t had a Whataburger, you really need to put it on your to-do list for the next time you’re here.

Oh, and late late night or early early morning Taquitos from Whataburger are all kinds of wonderful goodness. With cheese. And don’t forget to ask for the picante.

Recall : La Espiga de Oro – Fiesta brand Flour Burrito Tortillas

This recall only affects Houston, Texas. The rest of ya’ll can mosey on by this one.

Today, La Espiga de Oro is recalling their 12 count Fiesta brand Flour Burrito Tortillas because they apparently contain undeclared whey. Little Miss Muffet is not pleased.

“The product was distributed through Fiesta Marts in Houston, Texas in plastic wrap packages labeled Fiesta 12 Flour Burrito Tortillas. The packages have the UPC code 51022 00060, and the recall includes tortilla packages labeled with a date of November 30, 2009 through December 20, 2009.”

Recall : Premium Edge Finicky Adult Cat and Premium Edge Hairball cat food

Premium Edge Finicky Adult Cat and Premium Edge Hairball cat food has been recalled because they both have the potential to produce Thiamine Deficiency in cats. 21 cases have already been reported about this, and for cats, Thiamine Deficiency is really bad news.

According to the recall article, “….symptoms of deficiency displayed by an affected cat can be gastrointestinal or neurological in nature. At the first stage the cat may show decreased appetite, salivation, vomiting, and weight loss. Later, neurologic signs can develop, which may include ventriflexion (bending towards the floor) of the neck, wobbly walking, circling, falling, and seizures. These ultimately may result in the death of the animal if left untreated.”

“The affected products were distributed in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Jersey, Maryland, Delaware, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Alabama, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, [and] Florida.”

“The affected date codes were RAF0501A22X 18lb. (BB28NOV10), RAF0501A2X 6 lb. (BB28NOV10), RAF0802B12X 18lb (BB30FEB11), RAH0501A22X 18 lb. (BB28NOV10), RAH0501A2X 6lb. (BB28NOV10, BB30NOV10, BB08DEC10)”

If you have any of these products, you should probably take your cat to the vet for a checkup even if they aren’t showing any signs yet.
