Kwik Trip, Incorporated is recalling some doughnuts because they contain undeclared traces of egg. Wisconsin is one of three states involved. The recall applies to all Glazers Donuts. Any one allergic to eggs could be at risk of serious or life-threatening reactions if they eat the product. The La Crosse based chain of convenience stores says it ordered the recall after it found out one of its suppliers had added the egg to a key ingredient. The corporation says the problem has been fixed and there have been no reports of illness, serious or otherwise. Consumers who bought the doughnuts and are allergic to eggs should return them for a refund.
La Crosse police spent the Easter week-end dealing with all sorts of domestic squabbles. Including three of them that stemmed from arguments over cell phones. On Good Friday, it was 28 year-old Damion Haynie beating down his girlfriend after the couple bought cell phones together at a big electronics store. Apparently, Haynie was frustrated that she picked out a phone that cost ten bucks more than his. And, his girlfriend told cops, he may have been high on crack. On Saturday, it was 22 year-old Zachary Reese getting busted after a shoving match with his girlfriend over her phone. And then Easter Sunday, 18 year-old Jacob Lorenz got hauled off to jail after a text message on his girlfriend's phone made him angry enough to throw her to the ground.
Signs of business recovery in Wisconsin. At least in numbers of businesses. New numbers from the state today show a big bump in the numbers of new businesses in the first quarter of this year compared to last year. Over 98 hundred new businesses formed in the first three months of this year. That's up by over 12 percent from the same time period last year. In March, the state says new business growth jumped by over four percent.
