On the Radar: Anti-Muslim stabbing, egg recall, Katrina

Anti-Muslim stabbing - A New York cab driver who was stabbed, allegedly after a passenger learned he was Muslim, will address the media Thursday afternoon at a news conference on the steps of City Hall. Shortly before the event, Mayor Michael Bloomberg is expected to meet with the driver, Ahmed Sharif, according to the mayor's schedule. At the news conference, Sharif will call for an end to anti-Muslim rhetoric that has followed the plan to build an Islamic cultural center two blocks from 9/11 ground zero.

Egg recall - Fresh eggs being produced by farms at the heart of a massive recall are making their way to consumers via facilities that pasteurize the eggs, process them and rid them of any possible salmonella. A half-billion eggs were recalled by Wright County Egg and Hillandale Farms during the salmonella scare.

Fresh eggs produced at those farms since the recall are being sold to "breaking plants" that break the eggshells, pasteurize the eggs and turn them into liquid or other form used in a variety of products, officials said.
