Salmonella Threat No Longer Looming

 

Summer unofficially ends and the outbreak that tainted most of the season is reportedly over.  Although the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the FDA may never be able implicate a definite source for the salmonella outbreak, the agencies feel there has been crucial evidence in linking the crisis to particular peppers of one Mexican farm.

The worst food born illness in decades inflicted a reported 1,440 this season, appearing initially in the contamination of tomatoes, eventually tainting onions, peppers and other produce.

All FDA warnings have been lifted, including the concerns involving jalapeno and serrano peppers from Mexico.
