The Morning Brew: Thursday, 8/2



Schnucks has recalled cans of its store-brand French-style green beans because of contamination fears. (AP)

Nothing from your pantry has been recalled yet? Just wait.

And now a special "Where Are They Now?" edition of the Morning Brew.

Rocco DiSpirito -- who went from a three-star chef at Union Pacific in New York City to the "star" of the reality-show train wreck The Restaurant -- is now lending his name to Bertolli frozen dinners. (Gawker)

Oh, yeah: He's also cooking at the cafeteria in the Condé Nast building. (Eater)

If you didn't read the item Annie posted at A to Z, I'll reprint it here:

Musician Eric Bachmann, frontman for Archers of Loaf and criminally underrated Crooked Fingers, is now selling Cuban sandwiches from a street cart in Denver. A great story. (Westword)
