Ryanair to cancel up to 300 flights next week due to strike
Affected customers were notified by email and SMS, the airline said on its website. Up to 50 flights starting or ending in Portugal and Belgium have been cancelled.

Salmonella can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, the elderly, and those with weakened immune systems. The company says the recall is a precaution based on their ingredient supplier's recall. It is conducting a food safety investigation, which it said may lead to the recall of other products.

Consumers who have recalled products in their home should throw them out or return them to the store where they were purchased.

For more information on the recall, you're asked to contact the company at 1-844-366-1171, 24 hours a day; consumer relations specialists are available Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. - 6 p.m. EST.
