China has detained five employees of a U.S.-owned Chinese meat supplier for allegedly selling expired meat to fast-food chains in China.

Apple Inc. reported a $7.75-billion profit in the quarter that ended June 28, due in no small part to strong iPhone sales.

The U.S. government aims to phase out thousands of railroad tank cars that carry crude oil and ethanol within two years as part of a plan to increase safety standards.

A Beverly Hills, Calif. auction house expects to sell what is possibly the longest known specimen of fossilized dung for up to $10,000. The item description (“pale brown-yellow coloring,” “eye-watering 40 inches,” “heavily botryoidal surface”) is pure poetry.
