One could argue that we didn’t really need corn-on-the-cob holders, but this was the ritual, so every time we picked up corn from the grocery store or the Amish-run farmers market, we pulled out those holders.

My grandmother, who lived about a mile away from us in my small Missouri town, also had a set of dachshund corn-on-the-cob holders, but she saved those for special occasions.

Grilling your burgers wrong could kill you this Independence Day

With multiple food recalls from chicken nuggets and bagged salad to ground beef, you shouldn’t skip grilling safety at your socially-distanced Fourth of July cookout.

Food safety experts, consumer groups and health officials have been stressing food safety precautions for years, particularly when recent recalls have again raised concerns about E. coli contamination.

In mid-June, nearly 43,000 pounds of ground beef, including packages sold at Walmart stores, were recalled because of possible E. coli. Four-pound bags of “Pilgrim’s Fully Cooked Chicken Breast Nuggets” shipped to stores in four states also have been recalled.

Meat isn’t the only food carrying risk. Fresh Express has recalled dozens of different salad mixes sold at stores in 31 states, including Walmart, Hy-Vee, Aldi and Jewel-Osco that may be linked to a Cyclospora outbreak that has sickened 206.
