Muesli recalled in UK

I usually begin my day about 3 a.m. (Australian time, that’s 1 p.m. EST) with a review of news, a couple of interviews, and a bowl of homemade granola (I use Alton Brown’s recipe), yogurt, and frozen berries that had been microwaved the night before and then sat in the fridge overnight to reduce the risk of hepatitis A.

Cow & Gate in the UK is recalling one batch of its Sunny Start My First Banana Muesli from 10 months on a precautionary basis because of complaints regarding insects found in the product. The company has advised that this product should not be consumed, in case other packs in the batch are affected.

I also like to begin my day with music while I write, and today in 1971, Pink Floyd released Meddle, a vastly underrated album but one that showed the potential of an evolving band that led to Dark Side of the Moon in 1972.
