The last few weeks we’ve all been avoiding tomatoes because of a suspected salmonella infection.
Now the FDA believes the salmonella outbreak may be coming from jalapeno peppers.
They found this salmonella strain on a Mexican jalapeno pepper in Texas.
So now they’re warning us to avoid fresh jalapenos, although tomatoes aren’t “exonerated.”
The FDA isn’t sure where the salmonella came from. But they’re warning us not to eat fresh jalapenos or products that are made from them, like fresh salsa.
What I’m getting from this is they really don’t know yet. So I’m staying away from jalapenos, salsa, and tomatoes.
