Having unlimited soup, salad or bread sticks anytime soon?

Here’s something to chew on.

It turns out, what made peoples’ stomachs turn over the past week was salad linked to Olive Garden and Red Lobster. That’s the word from the FDA.

Darden, the company that owns the chains, says the tainted product is no linger in its food supply.

So go on, get yourself some cheddar bay biscuits.
