Beef over competing pork roll fests in New Jersey

(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.
