Salmonella Scare Finally Over

It's finally officially over and 1442 people have stories to tell. In all, 286 people ended up in the hospital after being infected in the salmonella outbreak that began in April. Tomatoes initially took the rap but now, the CDC says jalapeno and serrano peppers were the real culprits. 

Now the FDA is finally lifting its advice for people to avoid raw peppers from Mexico, which is where they traced the start of the outbreak.
