The maker of Keurig coffee brewers agreed this week to pay a $5.8 million penalty after allegedly failing for years to report a defect that caused more than 100 burns, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. Vermont-based Keurig Green Mountain recalled 6.6 million of its Keurig MINI Plus brewers in December 2014. Keurig received about 200 reports of water, coffee or coffee grounds overheating and spraying out of the device during brewing between 2010 and 2014, the CPSC said in a news release. Some of the more than 100 injury reports received involved second- and third-degree burns, according to the CPSC.

<![CDATA[Sticker Shock for Olive Oil Buyers After Bad Italian Harvest]]>Tue, 21 Feb 2017 13:44:25 -0500http://media.nbcphiladelphia.com/images/213*120/AP_17047651332267-olive-farm-italy.jpg
From specialty shops in Rome to supermarkets around the world, lovers of Italian olive oil are in for some sticker shock this year, with prices due to jump by as much as 20 percent. The combination of bad weather and pests hit the harvest in Southern Europe, most of all in Italy, where production is halved from last fall. That's pushing up Italian wholesale prices by 64 percent as of mid-February compared with a year earlier, which translates to shelf price increases of 15 to 20 percent in Italy. In other countries, the ultimate price increases will depend on several factors — such as how much retailers take on the costs themselves and the change in currency values. The U.S., for example, is likely to see a more modest rise in price as a stronger dollar keeps a lid on the cost of imports.

A mild stretch of temperatures has jumpstarted Vermont’s signature maple sugaring season. The warm weekend sparked big sap flows across Vermont, including from the 81,000 tree taps at Runamok Maple. That producer has already started boiling the sap collected this weekend, reducing it down into sweet syrup. While the mild stretch has made for an earlier-than-typical start to the season, wintertime sap runs are not unheard of, so Runamok has been on standby, ready to capitalize on conditions.

California's Salinas Valley is referred to as the "salad bowl of the nation," best described in iconic pages when John Steinbeck, American author and son of the Monterey County community, put pen to paper in most of his classic writings. It's here in this region of sprawling fields about 100 miles south of San Francisco where Japanese immigrants found their American dream after World War II in the cut flowers business, evident even today. As California's law legalizing marijuana is poised to go into effect next year, Salinas enters a new chapter in its agricultural history. It could become the cannabis capital of the state.

U.S. employers stepped up hiring last month, adding a healthy 227,000 jobs, and more Americans began looking for work, a sign that President Donald Trump has inherited a robust job market. January's job gain was the best since September and exceeded last year's average monthly gain of 187,000, the Labor Department reported Friday. The unemployment rate ticked up to a still-low 4.8 percent last month from 4.7 percent in December. But the rate rose for a mostly good reason: More Americans started looking for work, though not all of them immediately found jobs. The percentage of adults working or looking for jobs reached its highest level since September.

The number of women sitting at the table in corporate boardrooms across the country is rising very slowly, but it's rising. Just over 15 percent of all director seats at publicly traded U.S. companies were held by women as of Dec. 31, according to a study by Equilar, a corporate research firm. That's up from 14 percent a year earlier and from 12 percent in 2013. So, the trend is toward more equal representation on boards, but parity won't happen until the end of 2055 unless the pace picks up, according to Equilar. That's nearly 40 years away, which may be about when girls born today begin sitting on corporate boards.

The Fed said in a statement ending its latest policy meeting Wednesday that the job market has continued to strengthen, inflation has climbed closer to its 2 percent target and economic activity remains steady. But it signaled that it wants more time to monitor the economy and that it still envisions a gradual pace of rate increases. It offered no hints about when it will resume raising rates.

A federal lawsuit filed Monday accuses banking giant Wells Fargo of illegally denying student loans to young immigrants who are protected from deportation and allowed to work and study in the U.S. under a program created by former President Barack Obama. Wells Fargo said it was disappointed the plaintiffs sued instead of working with the bank on a solution. The young immigrants have Social Security numbers and documents that meet bank requirements for identification, but Wells Fargo refuses to give them student loans based on their citizenship status, according to the lawsuit by the Los Angeles-based Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund.

Skip Horween's great-grandmother wanted nothing to do with football. In fact, her two sons were so petrified she would find out they were messing around with the barbaric-looking game that they decided to play under assumed names. That's how it came to be that Arnold and Ralph "McMahon," both standouts on the Harvard football team a century ago, managed to play for the Chicago Cardinals in the early days of professional football. And in a roundabout way, it's how their family, immigrants from the Ukraine who opened a Chicago tannery in 1905, would come to provide the leather for NFL game balls used today.

The threat from President Donald Trump to tax Mexican-made cars sold in the U.S. would throw the industry into disarray, analysts say, forcing some uncomfortable choices: Raise car prices or swallow the cost. Stop selling Mexican-made cars in the U.S. but risk losing customers. Move production to the U.S. but make less money. "I don't think the auto industry would turn up its feet and die, but it would be a terrible shock.

The e-commerce company has said it plans to create 1 million U.S. jobs by helping businesses sell to China. Ma did not confirm a specific number of jobs to reporters after the meeting but said he planned to focus on agricultural products, CNBC reported. The meeting comes amid tensions between China and the incoming Trump administration. "We also think that the China and USA relationship should be strengthened — should be more friendly," Ma said. "The door is open for discussing the relationship and trade issues. I think the president-elect is very smart, he's very open-minded to listen."

General Motors has no plans to change where it produces small cars because of criticism from President-elect Donald Trump, the company's top executive said Sunday night. CEO Mary Barra said the auto business has long lead times for where it produces vehicles, with decisions made two to four years ahead. Last week Trump threatened on Twitter to slap a border tax on GM for importing the compact Chevrolet Cruze to the U.S. from Mexico. As it turns out, GM only imports a small number of Cruze hatchbacks from Mexico and Barra said it makes all of the sedans at a factory in Lordstown, Ohio, near Cleveland.
