Popular U.S. pizza chain Papa John's faces a $250 million class-action lawsuit for blasting customers with illegal text messages.
The plaintiffs allege that Papa John's franchises sent customers a total of 500,000 unwanted messages in early 2010.

While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.
