A recurring clash between the government's top infectious disease doctor and a U.S. senator has erupted again on Capitol Hill, with each accusing the other of lying. Dr. Anthony Fauci angrily confronted Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky in testimony before a Senate committee. Fauci rejected Paul's insinuation that the U.S. helped fund research at a Chinese lab that could have sparked the COVID-19 outbreak. Fauci spoke to the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee, saying a study the senator mentioned referenced a different sort of virus entirely from the one responsible for the coronavirus outbreak.

ST. LOUIS — Meat maker Deli Star will relocate to St. Louis in a move expected to bring 475 jobs.

The company is renovating 104,080 square feet of space at the Villa Lighting Building at 3049 Chouteau Ave. The new facility represents more than $99 million in capital investment, according to the Missouri Department of Economic Development, which announced the move on Tuesday.

Production is expected to begin in 2022.

Deli Star was headquartered for 34 years in Fayetteville, Illinois. The company relocated to the city after a fire in January destroyed its production facilities.

Deli Star makes sous-vide proteins, slow cooked meats, deli logs, protein salads, sauces and plant-based proteins.
