• The Associated Press reports that western New York-based Tops Markets “says it has emerged from bankruptcy,” and “that it has reorganized with the support of its creditors and reduced its debt by about $445 million. A court approved the restructuring plan earlier this month … As part of its reorganization, it closed 10 stores and resolved a pension dispute with the United Food and Commercial Workers Union, which represents most of its workers.”

USA Today reports that “the nation's largest beef processor, JBS USA, is recalling nearly 100,000 pounds of ground beef for possible E. coli contamination, according to the Department of Agriculture.
