This edition of For Immediate Release Fridays–albeit late due to travel–includes some fishier than usual fish sticks, fighting over a bill designed to overhaul Consumer Product Safety (and in turn, kill the need for burying recall announcements on Fridays), and a massive military contract that will be talked about for weeks:

Gorton’s Seafood recalls their ‘6 Crispy Battered Fish Fillets’ product

Air Force selects Northrop Grumman over Boeing to build the new aerial refueling tanker. Look for the for-and-against on this for weeks, tied to election & economic news

Consumer Union urges the Senate to pass a bill designed to overhaul the Consumer Product Safety Commission and also denounces Senator Jim DeMint’s opposition

And in positive news, Bow Tie Inc. scoops up nine Maxwell awards for editorial excellence from the Dog Writers Association of America.
