Salmonella found on jalapeno, tomatoes cleared

 
July 21, 2008

Government inspectors have found the same bacteria linked to the nationwide salmonella outbreak on a single Mexican-grown jalapeno pepper that was handled by a small Texas produce shipper. Authorities don't know where the pepper became tainted and are advising consumers to avoid eating any fresh jalapenos, or products made with them, such as fresh salsa.

Tomatoes are now cleared.
