Salmonella outbreak may have had warning signs
Aug. 20, 2008
KXAN (Austin, Texas): An Associated Press review of Food and Drug Administration records has found there was a warning sign ahead of the recent salmonella outbreak, traced to Mexican peppers, that made 1,400 people sick.
Federal inspectors at U.S. border crossings apparently repeatedly turned back dirty, disease-ridden shipments of peppers from Mexico in the months before the outbreak, although the FDA has said the peppers had not been a problem.
