New York could become the first U.S. city. to require warning labels on high-salt dishes at chain restaurants, taking campaigns to cut down on salt into new territory, health officials told The Associated Press on Tuesday. The city’s Health Department will propose Wednesday that all chain restaurants add a salt-shaker-like symbol on menus next to products that contain more than the recommended daily limit of 2,300 milligrams of sodium, about 1 teaspoon of salt. Public health advocates hailed the proposal as a pioneering step to tackle a major problem. Salt producers called it off-base.

New York State Police said they’re following hundreds of leads in an attempt to find two murderers who escaped from a maximum security prison. An industrial training supervisor at the prison has been interviewed and removed from her post. Police were spotted at the woman’s home which is about an hour from the prison. Police began their search near the manhole from which the two men emerged following their subterranean escape. A man who lives near it told ABC News he saw two men he thought were hoodlums carrying what he thought was a guitar case. He said he confronted the men, who told him they were going in the wrong direction. Then they took off running.

Among the Topics of discussion at this year’s G7 conference, which included the crisis in Ukraine, climate change and the Greek economy, global security threats were paramount. President Obama addressed this in a statement as he left the conference saying that the global leaders do not yet have a complete strategy in training Iraqi soldiers to get the job done. And lacking that, one can assume there’s no overall strategy yet for defeating ISIS altogether.

Two murderers who used power tools to escape from prison must have taken days to cut through steel walls and pipes and break through the bricks, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Sunday as a $100,000 reward was posted for information leading to their capture. Authorities were investigating how the inmates obtained the power tools they used in the “Shawshank Redemption”-style breakout over the weekend. David Sweat, 34, was serving a sentence of life without parole for the 2002 killing of a sheriff’s deputy. Richard Matt, 48, had been sentenced to 25 years to life for kidnapping, killing and dismembering his former boss in 1997.
