George H.W. Bush Moved From Intensive Care

Former U.S. President George H.W. Bush was to be moved out of the intensive care unit at Houston Methodist Hospital on Monday, doctors said.

Bush, 92, has been receiving treatment for pneumonia and was hooked up to a ventilator for several days last week, the Associated Press reported.

At a new conference Monday, Dr. Clint Doerr said the former president has been sitting up in bed watching TV, asking for oyster stew and saying he wants to go home, but also stressed that Bush is still recovering from pneumonia.

Also on Monday, former first lady Barbara Bush was discharged from Houston Methodist Hospital after being treated for bronchitis, the AP reported.

Sierra Nevada Beer Recalled

A glass packaging flaw has led to the recall of certain batches of 12-ounce bottles of beer made by the Sierra Nevada Beer Co.

Quality inspections detected some bottles with a flaw that may lead to loss of carbonation and for a small piece of glass to break off and possibly fall into the bottle, posing an injury risk, the company said.

The recall covers the following products:

  • Pale Ale 12-ounce bottles in 6-, 12- and 24-pack (case) formats
  • Torpedo Extra IPA 12-ounce bottles in 6-, 12- and 24-pack (case) formats
  • Tropical Torpedo 12-ounce bottles in 6-pack format
  • Sidecar Orange Pale Ale 12-ounce bottles in 6-, 12- and 24-pack (case) formats
  • Beer Camp Golden IPA 12-ounce bottles in 6-, 12- and 24-pack (case) formats
  • Otra Vez 12-ounce bottles in 6-pack format
  • Nooner 12-ounce bottles in 6-pack format
  • Hop Hunter IPA 12-ounce bottles in 6-, 12- and 24-pack (case) formats

To date, there have been no reports of injuries from defective bottles distributed in a large number of Midwest, Southern and East Coast states.
