Salmonella Originated at Farm in Mexico

Health officials may have a break in the salmonella case and it's at a farm in Mexico.

The Food and Drug Administration's Food Safety Chief says a salmonella strain has been linked to a farm in Nuevo Leon, Mexico. Investigators say they've found the strain in irrigation water and a Serrano pepper at the farm.

However, federal health officials say they are not ruling out tomatoes or peppers and say the outbreak may have been caused by a combination of contaminated produce.
