6:25 pm
the thrust up, go around. solve this problem before it's too late. >> reporter: the ntsb had scheduled a public hearing on the crash for november 6 and 7 but that's been delayed because of the government shutdown. most of the transportation board staff has been furloughed until the budget mess is straightened out and the full report isn't due for a full year. so -- >> human reaction, i didn't do it, it was the plane's fault? is that what's going on? >> that's what it appears to be but we don't know. >> we'll find out when that report comes in. allen, thank you for that. coming up in our next half hour -- >> we can't make extortion routine as part of our democracy. >> a game of truth or dare between the white house and congress. the building pressure to make a deal as the country careens towards a bigger economic crisis. >> california mail carrier stages a personal protest against obamacare. what he was doing with all those flyers addressed to homeowners. >> and tainted chickens sicken hundreds in california. so why no recall? we dug up the answer in decades old government regulations. ,,

6:34 pm
>> terrible, irresponsible. >> reporter: and it's totally legal. but only because chicken is regulated by the usda and not the fda. >> it makes no sense but that's the way the law is. >> reporter: this food safety lawyer explains salmonella is considered an adulterant by the fda which regulates all food except meat. >> if this was an fda product, spinach, spices, peppers, the product would be recalled yesterday. >> reporter: but he says it's the usda which oversees chicken and beef and it doesn't consider salmonella an adulterant and therefore doesn't require a recall when it's found. >> despite the fact that it sickens and kills people. >> reporter: he says it dates back to a decades old court case where the usda was sued over salmonella tainted hamburger. >> the retort by usda in the 1970s was that it's not an adulterant, it's a natural occurring bacteria, and honestly what they said, well, housewives would cook it properly. >> reporter: well, no matter who is cooking it, we now know it's not always cooked properly
6:35 pm
and it can be deadly. yet this chicken remains on store shelves despite a public health alert. state health officials just revealed to us that more than 200 of the nearly 300 cases are here in california. and some of the strains are antibiotic-resistant. the food and safety groups have been calling on the usda for more than two years to classify at least this type of salmonella as an adulterant and subject to recall. if you have a consumer problem give us a call 888-5-helps-u. >> you don't get sick from the chicken. it's what it touched from the cutting board to the faucet when you turn on and off the water or -- >> reporter: what you touch after you touched the chicken and yes, salmonella, it really is difficult to get rid of. and i was actually just told that if you had salmonella, if you actually were sick with salmonella, you can be a carrier and give it to someone else even if you don't have symptoms. >> so it's not just something that's passed around the kitchen. you can pass it on to your
6:36 pm
loved ones. >> reporter: yes. and in this case they are seeing some antibiotic- resistant strains. google introduces a new laptop today and while it may be sleek and inexpensive it has one very distinguishing feature. the new chrome book has a charger that uses the same connection as most smartphones. it has a battery life of six hours which is enough for a cross-country flight. the screen is 11" but they are not the most powerful computers. so high-end users may be turned off by this one but experts say they are perfect in a pinch. >> they make great secondary home computers if want a second laptop laying around, an emergency laptop something to take while you travel that if it gets wrecked or something you're okay with that. these are excellent for that. >> and the price tag is perhaps the biggest draw for the new chrome book. they go for just $279. getting tough with trash thieves. >> ist putting something in my garbage -- i was putting something in my garbage and hit
