WESH - Cattle caused at least three separate crashes early Tuesday morning in Volusia County, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. Troopers said in all three accidents, the vehicles hit cows in the roadway near Cucumber Lane, which is just west of New Smyrna Beach.

The cattle owner said the cows add up to approximately $20,000, which is a major loss to the Whispering Palms Farms. It is unclear how the cattle escaped the farm, but the owner said they are still looking for nine more.

NBC News - Kraft Heinz is expanding a recall of Kraft Singles products, saying a problem with the packaging film affects 10 times as many cases as it first thought. The company recalled 335,000 cases Thursday because a thin strip of packaging film may stick to the slice after the wrapper has been taken off, creating a choking hazard. Kraft Heinz recalled 36,000 cases on July 31 for the same reason. The privately held company said it’s received two new reports of customers choking. It disclosed three such reports in July, and said it had received seven other complaints about the packaging.
