FDA Warns about Jalapenos

A reminder that the Food and Drug Administration is warning people not to eat fresh Jalapeno Peppers. Government inspectors have found Salmonella in a Jalapeno that was grown in Mexico but sent to Texas for distribution.

This is the same strain of salmonella that was responsible for the nationwide tomato problem that sickened more than 1,200 people.Government officials are calling this an important break in the case, but they add that it does not mean the contamination began in mexico.       

Meanwhile, the FDA has lifted its ban on tomatoes.
