Food Scare - Was Tomatoes, Might Be Jalapeños and More

In the latest update to the Salmonella tomato story, the blame is starting to shift to other food items that are commonly eaten with tomatoes. It's an interesting twist as tomatoes are no longer seen as the prime suspect for Salmonella. The latest culprits now include jalapeño peppers, cilantro, Serrano peppers, and salsas. The FDA and CDC teams continue their investigation to find the source of Salmonella. For more background, read the previous post: FDA Announces Progress in Its Protection Plan. As for me, no more tomatoes, peppers, cilantro, or salsa for now. I'm hoping the investigative teams discover the root cause, and identify the food handling deviations leading to the Salmonella contamination.
