TRENTON - (AP) - A beef between organizers of two competing pork roll festivals in New Jersey's capital city has turned into a food fight.

"Trenton Pork Roll Festival 2015" organizer TC Nelson received a cease-and-desist letter from a lawyer for "Official 2nd Annual Pork Roll Festival" organizer Scott Miller.

The men ran the city's first festival last year, which celebrated the pork-based processed meat that was developed in the city and is also known as Taylor Ham. But a disagreement grew over money and organization.

Nelson says it is ridiculous that Miller wants him to license the idea of having a festival.

Miller's lawyer says in an email that Miller's organization remains open to discussing options.

The festivals are scheduled for May 23, along with The Trenton Vegan Pork Roll festival.
