— There has never been a better excuse to stick with the real stuff: Kraft is recalling more than two million pounds — yes, million — of its Oscar Mayer Turkey Bacon. The meat strip may be "adulterated," and because of that it could spoil before its "Best When Used by Date." This is the second recall Kraft has issued this month: The company also had to recall its Kraft Singles cheese slices because they could potentially be a choking hazard.

— Presidential candidate/red cup producer Donald Trump declared Tuesday that he would no longer eat Oreos. Why? Because Nabisco plans to close a plant in Chicago and move its manufacturing operations to Mexico, a country he isn't exactly on friendly terms with. "I'm never eating Oreos again," said Trump. More for the rest of us. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 

— Sorry, shouty chef Gordon Ramsay, you do not have the best restaurant in the U.K., according to the Waitrose Good Food Guide. L'Enclume, in Cumbria, England, took the top honors for the third year in a row. In second place is Restaurant Gordon Ramsay, and in third is Jason Atherton's Pollen Street Social.

— Beloved cult burger chain Shake Shack continues its expansion streak: The restaurant plans to open its third London location later this year. The outpost will serve the standard menu of fries, hot dogs, burgers, and frozen custard. If this opening is like the others, Londoners should brace for serious lines.

— Blue Bell is starting to slowly recover from its massive Listeria recall. The company announced that its third flavor — cookies and cream — will now return to stores. Blue Bell said it would bring back back vanilla and chocolate to stores by the end of August.

— Anheuser-Busch InBev, one of the largest beer companies in the world, is going a little greener. The company announced that all of its diesel-fueled tractors in St. Louis that deliver beer across the Midwest will now use compressed natural gas. This is part of an effort to the reduce carbon dioxide emissions. The St. Louis-based fleet of trucks travels 11.5 million miles per year.

— A judge has dismissed a lawsuit that was filed in February that accused whiskey maker Jim Beam of false advertising. The $5 million suit said that the label, which features the phrase "handcrafted," is misleading because the booze is not "handmade by a skilled craftsman." The judge noted that the "use of stills is common in the industry and that customers understand the whiskey is made using some machines."
