    More than 2.4 million pounds of ready-to-eat taquitos have been recalled due to possible contamination with salmonella and listeria, the Food Safety and Inspection Service announced.

    The recall includes meat and poultry taquitos produced between July 1 and Oct. 10, 2018, by Ruiz Food Products, according to a Friday press release from the FSIS. The affected products are 4.5-pound cases of Go-Go Taquitos in “Beef Taco & Cheese Taquitos," “Buffalo Style Cooked Glazed Chicken Taquitos" and “Chipotle Chicken Wrapped in A Battered Flour Tortilla." The items were shipped nationwide.

    There have been no confirmed reports of illness from customers eating the food. But the FSIS said people should not eat taquitos already purchased and to throw them away. The agency encouraged people to contact their healthcare providers if they are concerned.

    Ruiz Food was notified on Oct. 16, 2018, that the diced onions used in the taquitos were being recalled by their supplier because of possible contamination.

    Salmonella can cause diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps. Diagnosing the illness requires a blood or stool sample, as other illnesses cause similar symptoms.

    Listeria can cause diarrhea, fever and other similar foodborne illness symptoms.

    Saudi Arabia’s foreign minister on Sunday called the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi at a consulate in Istanbul “a rogue operation” and denied that the kingdom’s crown prince or intelligence service had any prior knowledge of the operation, NBC News reported.

    “This was an operation that was a rogue operation,” Adel al-Jubeir told Fox News on Sunday. “This was an operation where individuals ended up exceeding the authorities and responsibilities they had."

    Jubeir said neither the Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman nor “the senior leadership of our intelligence service” was aware of what had happened to Khashoggi.

    “There obviously was a tremendous mistake made, and what compounded the mistake was the attempt to try to cover up,” he said, adding, “That is unacceptable in any government.”

    There's an old baseball adage that says you play to tie at home and play to win on the road. Mike Vrabel took that to heart.

    The Titans head coach made a controversial decision in the waning seconds of their 20-19 loss to the Chargers at London’s Wembley Stadium on Sunday.

    "We're not going to second-guess the call," Vrabel. "I've got a lot of faith in our players. It just didn't work out."

    Tennessee scored a touchdown with 35 seconds to play when Marcus Mariota hit Luke Stocker for a 1-yard touchdown pass to cut a lead the Chargers held since literally their first play of the game to 20-19. Instead of kicking the extra point Vrabel decided to go for two and the win.

    Mariota's pass was incomplete but Casey Hayward was flagged for holding so Tennessee got another shot, this time from the 1-yard line. Vrabel again went for two and again Mariota's pass was incomplete. The head coach committed to going for two long before his offense found the end zone.

    "When that drive started I thought in my mind that if we scored ... when we scored ... if there were less than 40 seconds we were going to go for two," said Vrabel. "It is was a minute and 30 seconds we were going to kick the extra point and go play defense."

    Trying a pair of passes when the Titans were averaging 5.0 yards per rush in the game is likely more curious than the decision to try and win. Mariota completed 24 of 32 passes for 237 yards with a touchdown and an interception but their final TD drive covered 89 yards and 66 of them were on the ground.

    Meanwhile, Philip Rivers was racking up yards with big plays. Without running back Melvin Gordon (inactive with a hamstring injury) Rivers completed 19 of 26 passes for 306 yards, two touchdowns and no turnovers. Both of his touchdown passes came from long range.

    After Tennessee kicked a field goal on their opening drive Rivers hooked up with wideout Tyrell Williams, who exploited a busted coverage in the Titans secondary, on their very first play from scrimmage for a 75-yard touchdown. The Bolts other score came on another Tennessee miscommunication that let Mike Williams run free for a 55-yard score.

    Rivers now has 17 touchdown passes and just three interceptions for the Chargers, who enter their bye week at 5-2 before taking a trip to Seattle on Nov. 4.

    He was traveling westbound near Massachusetts Avenue around 1:15 p.m., the California Highway Patrol said.

    The motorcyclist was launched onto the right hand shoulder.

    Moments before the incident, a caller reported the trash can to local law enforcement, CHP said.

    A passer-by stopped to move his motorcycle off the road, according to CHP.

    The man broke his leg during the crash but will be okay, CHP said.

    An Escondido man is stepping up to help those affected by Hurricane Michael’s rampage through Florida.

    Cpt. Robert Butler asked the county for help to load up a large trailer full of food, medicine, and other supplies that he drove to Florida himself.

    “That’s what we need to do as a community,” Butler told NBC 7. “That’s what the United States is about - getting together and making things happen.”

    Butler has a friend in Mexico Beach, Florida, which was hit hard by the Category 4 hurricane, according to a post he made to Facebook.

    “We knew that he [Butler’s friend] was right in the middle of the storm, and, with all the craziness going on in the world, I just figured it was something I needed to do,” Butler said.

    Community members donated a 24-foot enclosed trailer for Butler to use.

    The trailer quickly got a paint job with Tow Boat U.S.’s logo on it. Butler works for Tow Boat U.S., and the company is no stranger to making deliveries.

    Butler left for Florida on October 18 at midnight.

    The trailer full of donated goods made it to Mexico Beach within a few days.

    A local community center was happy to take the supplies from Butler and his team.

    “They have a little hurricane room there, and they all piled into this hurricane-proof room to weather the storm, because they had no place to go,” Butler said. “They’re going to rebuild. They’ll get it together and live on.”

    Butler is now headed near Washington D.C. to re-load the trailer for the Hurricane Michael victims.

    Two men riding electric scooters crashed near a Buca di Beppo Italian Restaurant downtown Sunday night.

    A 43-year-old was using a Bird scooter on G Street when a 48-year-old crashed into him just after 6 p.m., according to the San Diego Police Department.

    Police said the younger man slowed down, but the older man was following at an unsafe distance and was unable to avoid him.

    The 48-year-old fell onto the roadway, fracturing his left arm, SDPD said. He was taken to a nearby hospital shortly after.

    The older man had been drinking, but police said no DUI.

    This comes less than two days after a 65-year-old woman fractured her leg while also riding a Bird scooter downtown.

    SDPD Traffic Division is investigating.

    Interstate 5 will have nightly closures for the rest of October starting Sunday as the Gilman Drive Bridge gets closer to completion.

    All I-5 southbound lanes will be closed from the I-5 and I-805 interchange to La Jolla Village Drive each night from 9:30 p.m. until 5 a.m., according to the San Diego Association of Governments.

    The closures will take effect from Sunday, October 21 through Thursday, October 25 and from Sunday, October 28 through Thursday, November 1.

    The Gilman Drive Bridge has been covered in a large, wooden support structure for more than a year, SANDAG said. These closures will give crews time to slowly unveil the bridge.

    The bridge was created by SANDAG, Caltrans, and the University of California, San Diego.

    The construction on the bridge began in November 2016, SANDAG said.

    The bridge will connect Gilman Drive to Medical Center Drive.

    It will be the second on-campus crossing over the I-5, according to SANDAG.

    Rail services will also see closures as part of the Mid-Coast Trolley Project.

    Little Italy’s own Godfather of sorts has become a prominent figure for the area.

    Silver fox Nick Pecoraro dons his dark black sunglasses, gold chain, and Italian leather shoes as he sits in front of his large, yellow house on India Street.

    “Once in a while, they call me the mayor or the Godfather,” Pecoraro said.

    He’s known for his unique style, charm, and countless hours spent sitting on his front porch watching passers-by.

    “I enjoy people,” Pecoraro told NBC 7. “Once in a while, somebody stops - we talk.”

    The local Godfather has lived in his gilded, yellow house for 51 years. He inherited it from his father-in-law who was one of the original fishermen in the neighborhood.

    Pecoraro stayed in the house, even after many of his neighbors left for the suburbs. He’s been offered more than $8 million for his home, but refuses to sell.

    “We are not going to sell,” he said. “Not even my kids can sell this property. I have it in writing.”

    Pecoraro moved to San Diego on November 25, 1967. He was born in a small town in Sicily, spent several years in the Sicilian military, moved to Paris for a few years, and then flew to San Diego on a recommendation from a brother-in-law.

    “Everybody those days used to say ‘Go to America, there’s a lot of money everywhere,’” Pecoraro said. “But when I got off the plane, I looked at the street, and I didn’t find the money.”

    Once in San Diego, Pecoraro quickly met his wife Josephine and had three children. His wife lived with him until her death two years ago.

    Though, he’s never alone, as his dog, Piro, never leaves his side.

    “He drives me crazy,” Pecoraro joked.

    He’s watched Little Italy grow from a tiny immigrant village to a booming destination.

    “Before this, it was dead. You don't see nobody. Now, you see too many people,” Pecoraro said.

    Little Italy’s Godfather said he loves all the restaurants in the area, even personally knowing at least half of the owners in town.

    As the town continues to grow, Nick Pecoraro will continue to watch, enjoying the ride.

    There will be an increased police presence at a Santee school this week following an attempted child luring at the school last week, a district official said.

    On Tuesday, as the middle school student was walking home from Pepper Drive School, a man approached her and offered her a ride, the Santee School District said in a letter sent home to parents last Wednesday.

    The letter was sent out after the student reported the incident to school officials, superintendent Kristin Baranski told NBC 7.

    The student told school officials the man was driving a small, white car full of clothes, trash and debris, the district said.

    The letter reminded parents to make sure if their children walk to and from school to walk in groups, and if approached by a stranger to go to a safe place and report the incident to a parent, a school official or the San Diego County Sheriff's Department.

    The sheriff's department is actively investigating the case, the district said but sheriff's officials have not responded to NBC 7's request for comments.

    More than a million Flushmate pressure-assisted toilet flushing systems have been recalled because they can can burst powerfully enough to cause the toilet to shatter, causing injuries and property damage.

    Nearly 1,500 incidents have been reported in the United States in connection with the Flushmate II 501-B pressure-assisted flushing system. At least 23 people have been hurt, one of whom needed foot surgery, and the incidents caused about $710,000 in damage, according to a recall notice posted Thursday by the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

    When pressure causes the system to burst at or near a weld seam, it can lift the lid of the toilet tank or shatter it completely, the agency said. Another version of the Flushmate product, the Series 503 Flushmate III, was subject to three recalls since 2012.

    The recall affects about 1.4 million units across the country along with nearly 17,500 in Canada. The units were sold widely for nearly two decades, including at Home Depot and Lowe's stores, and are identifiable by looking on the label for series number 501-B, a model number beginning in M and ending in F and a serial number that begins with date codes between 090396 and 120713, indicating the dates between Sept. 3, 1996, and Dec. 7, 2013.

    Anyone with a recalled unit is advised to turn off its water and flush the toilet to release the pressure inside.

    Flushmate will replace and install the recalled units for free. Contact the company at 844-621-7538 between 8 a.m. and 10 p.m. ET on weekdays or between 8 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. ET Saturday, or visit this page.

    An uncommon partnership has turned struggle into success in Lakeside.

    The 3 billion-gallon Lake Jennings Reservoir in East County, managed by the Helix Water District, is now a popular fishing and camping destination but that hasn't always been the case.

    Several years ago, the lake's recreational campground was losing money and the district considered shutting it down.

    "People didn't know that we were here," said Kira Haley, Lake Jennings Recreation Manager. "When you talked to people that lived right down the street, they didn't know that there was a campground up here."

    In December 2014, the district hired Haley, who has a background in hospitality, and changed the responsibilities of the recreation manager position.

    "We're here to make sure people know that this place exists and it's a great place to come even if you're just looking for a hike or a place to eat your lunch," said Haley.

    The district spruced up the landscaping, added organized activities for kids, and hired marketing consultants to increase its social media presence, enhance its website and create a new logo.

    It also added a popular new feature at the campground: five tipis made of hand-stitched canvas and hand-peeled pine.

    "It was really just a way for us to allow families that don't have camping equipment the easy opportunity for them to come in, [the] camp's already set up, all you do is bring what you need to sleep and there's a vinyl floor inside," explained Haley. "They've been getting sold out pretty much every single weekend since March. "

    The district made a number of other changes: adding rental kayaks, repainting the restroom and adding a laundry facility for long-term campers.

    Haley said occupancy rates improved over the last few years and the campground made its first-ever profit of $101,787 in the fiscal year ending June 30.

    "It really means the Helix Water District is no longer subsidizing the cost to run a recreation operation, that Lake Jennings is self-sustaining, that we're able to even put a little bit back into some options of how to make this place more beautiful and better."

    If this keeps up, the district will be able to replace the original boat dock, built when Lake Jennings first opened 50 years ago.

    There's also a plan to add more campsites to the 97 already in place.

    "We have 344 acres so there's lots of space," explained Haley. "A lot of the ground is very hard though, so it will take some significant grading and work to create additional campsites."

    The water district also wants to build an indoor space for people to rent out for weddings, birthdays, corporate picnics and other events. It would possibly be located at Hermit Cove, which can accommodate a few hundred people.

    "It's about offering something to the community, making sure there is a place for the community to come, whether or not they're interested in bird watching, hiking, or our large fishing program," explained Haley. "It's definitely a value to the community to have this place here. And now that it's self-sustaining it's a good thing to have around hopefully for a long time to come."

    The campgrounds at Lake Jennings are open seven days a week. The boating area is open Friday through Sunday.

    One person was injured as his car drove into a construction site in Otay Mesa, traveled over a ditch and flipped onto its roof. 

    The collision happened just after 6 a.m. at Drucker Lane, near Siempre Viva Road, within walking distance from the U.S.-Mexico border.

    A man was pulled from the wreckage of the car. He told one witness before emergency personnel arrived that he could feel his toes but was having trouble breathing because of the seatbelt. 

    Chula Vista firefighters and San Diego Fire-Rescue crews responded. They transported the man to a nearby hospital by air ambulance.

    Several power lines were knocked down at the construction site. 

    One worker said he was concerned how the collision was going to delay the project. 

    The construction site is located just north of the U.S.-Mexico border and southwest of where Interstate 905 connects with State Route 125.

    East County residents united Sunday to protest the placement of a sexually violent predator nicknamed the "Bolder Than Most Rapist" into their remote community. 

    Alvin Quarles was sentenced to 50 years in prison for crimes committed in 1989 but Judge David Gill granted Quarles parole on Oct. 12 after serving just over half of his sentence.

    The Department of State Hospitals decided to place him in the Jacumba Hot Springs area, prompting outrage for residents of the East County community. 

    "I’m fed up with East County San Diego being used as a dumping ground," resident Julia Bishop said. 

    She lives about 20 minutes from where Quarles will be released and said he is not the first sexual predator to be placed into their community. 

    "I’m angry, I’m disappointed in our elected officials and our judges, and, frankly, I have become concerned for the safety of all of our residents that live in that area of East County," she said. 

    She and other residents gathered at Tio Leo's restaurant in San Diego to urge officials to consider keeping Quarles in a mental treatment facility.

    Quarles has been diagnosed with Sexual Sadism Disorder, Voyeuristic Disorder and Antisocial Personality Disorder, according to the San Diego County District Attorney's Office, which opposed his release.

    He was convicted in a series of sexual assaults in the 1980s that involved 14 different victims. Four of his victims were raped at knifepoint.

    When Quarles was up for parole in July 2014, the survivors of his attacks filed a petition to have him civilly committed as a Sexually Violent Predator to a state mental facility.

    One of Quarles' victims, Mary Taylor, was at Sunday's community meeting and said she is fighting for her rights and the rights of other victims. 

    "I’m here because every step along the way when decisions were made, the wrong decision was made," Taylor said. "I’m not accepting it anymore – I’m done with accepting it. It’s time we tell the criminal justice system victims have rights."

    Taylor also said she and other of Quarles' victims were not notified of his release, which is in violation of Marsy's Law, which provides additions rights to crime victims. 

    She has started an online petition to stop Quarles' release. 

    Judge Gill ordered Quarles release to the Jacumba Hot Springs residence at 43050 Desert Rose Ranch Road be completed by Nov. 30, where he will be supervised in a conditional release program. 

    The location is near where the state placed convicted rapist and child molester Herman Smith in April.

    The man accused of killing an Oceanside man was discovered just steps from the victim's home, police said Monday.

    John Roth was found dead by his wife when she came home from work on Aug. 14. 

    Homicide investigators said DNA evidence provided information leading them to Carey Lamond Reid, Jr., 21. Reid is known to be a transient who lives in Oceanside. 

    On Sunday, Oceanside police officers were called to a section of North Coast Highway for a person laying on the ground in a parking lot. Officers determined the man to be Reid and took him into custody. 

    The parking lot is located directly behind the apartment where Roth was found dead, police said. 

    Investigators believe a burglar entered Roth's home.  The back door was open and Roth might have been sleeping before the burglar killed him, OPD said.

    Jewelry, a laptop, Roth's widow's wedding ring, and a number of antique unique Chinese coins were stolen from the home.

    Investigators say the 77-year-old veteran was loved around town.

    "John was a little bit of a celebrity if you will," OPD Detective Erik Ellgard said. "He was known in many establishments downtown."

    The Trump administration may be considering redefining gender as an unchangeable condition determined solely by a person's biology, according to a leaked memo draft obtained by The New York Times. 

    The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services argued in the drafted memo, which has not been seen by NBC News, that the government needs to adopt a uniformed definition of gender “on a biological basis that is clear, grounded in science, objective and administrable,” the Times reported. 

    If enacted as written in the memo, the legal definition of sex under Title IX, which prevents gender discrimination, would be determined as male or female based on the genitals a person was born with as listed on the person's birth certificate. Disputes would have to be settled using genetic testing, according to the Times. 

    Lambda Legal, a national legal organization advocating for LGBTQ rights, wrote, "Transgender folks: You are valid. You matter. You are loved. We will not stop fighting for your rights and you #WontBeErased by this heartless administration. #TransRightsAreHumanRights."

    “We do not comment on alleged leaked documents,” a Health and Human Services spokesperson said in response to the Times story, NBC News reported
