More than 200 million eggs are being recalled over salmonella fears.  Indiana-based Rose Acre Farms issued a recall on the eggs in connection to 22 cases of salmonella reported on the East Coast.  The Food and Drug Administration says the eggs were distributed to consumers in Colorado, Florida, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia.  The FDA says Rose Acre's North Carolina farm, which distributed the contaminated eggs, produces 2.3 million eggs a day.


If April showers really do bring May flowers, your garden should like very nice this spring.  Accu-Weather's Elliot Abrams says we're getting quite a bit of rain today.  "We'll probably get a couple of inches," Abrams says.  Rain will taper off this afternoon, however there's a chance for a shower or two in tomorrow's forecast as well.


Authorities are asking for help in identifying a man found dead at an Allentown restaurant.  Police and the Lehigh County Coroner's Office are both seeking anyone who might be able to ID a man found unresponsive inside a North 7th Street restaurant Saturday afternoon.  The man was taken to Sacred Heart Hospital in Allentown, where he was pronounced dead around 3 o'clock Saturday afternoon.  An autopsy is planned today.


Police in Easton are looking for a suspect who fired off several rounds on an area street.  Police responded to a call on Hoyt Street about gun shots around 12:30 Sunday morning.  Shell casings were found at the scene but nobody was there.  There are no reports of any injuries.


The Easton Area School District says a recent intruder only entered a school to eat a morning meal.  The school district has released a statement concerning an incident that took place Friday at the Easton Area Middle School involving an unauthorized person entering the building.  The district reports the intruder was an unarmed woman who had attempted to eat breakfast in the school before police arrived and took her into custody.  The incident remains under investigation and school officials are reviewing this to make sure it doesn't happen again.


A "Shut Down Starbucks" protest is taking place today in the Rittenhouse Square section of Philadelphia. Groups "Philly for REAL Justice" and "Black and Brown Workers Cooperative" have organized the protest in response to the arrest of two African-American men who were in the Starbucks on Spruce Street last week when they were arrested after allegedly refusing to leave while firing of the employee who called police and the firing of the officers involved.  Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson has already apologized for the situation and says he'll soon come to Philadelphia and apologize to the two men arrested personally.


Philadelphia's police commissioner says his officers are in the right for arresting two African-American men at a Starbucks last week.  Commissioner Richard Ross recorded a Facebook Live video Sunday, saying that Starbucks employees told them that the two men attempted to use the restroom without making a purchase, which is against company policy and asked them to leave but they refused.  Ross also says that the men, upon refusing to leave, were then trespassing and that that officer were professional and did nothing wrong in arrested them.  Ross pointed out that he, as an African-American, is aware of bias, but says, "We are committed to fair and unbiased policing and anything less than that will not be tolerated in this department."


The Pennsylvania Game Commission is offering tips to spring hunters on how to spot a bearded turkey to spare a hen.  The commission posted to social media Sunday that while any bearded turkey is allowed for harvesting in the spring, letting the bearded hens go will lead to larger overall populations later in the year.  If you're not sure which bird is which, the hens have a blue-grey head with feathers on the neck, unlike the bald males.  Hen beards are also generally thinner and have duller breast feathers.


Daryl Worley is being released by the Eagles after being arrested for allegedly resisting arrest.  Worley was reportedly passed out inside a car Sunday and became combative with Philadelphia police, leading to him being tasered.  A gun was also allegedly recovered at the scene.  Worley was traded to Philadelphia in the offseason and never played a down for the team.


Pittsburgh dominated the Flyers 5-1 Sunday afternoon in game three of their playoff series.  Flyers captain Claude Giroux believes his team can rebound like it already has in the series.  "It's not time to panic.  We play again Wednesday and the guys are going to be ready and we'll put this one behind us.  We'll do exactly what we did after game one.  We'll look at what we did wrong and fix 'em," Giroux says.  Game four is Wednesday night in Philadelphia.
