FDA now says the mystery salmonella is in jalapeno peppers

First the bumbling FDA blamed a recent salmonella outbreak on tomatoes. They even hinted that the sickness could be blamed on Mexico. Now they have found the exact strain of salmonella that caused the outbreak on one, single Mexican-grown-but-handled-in-Texas jalapeƱo pepper. Tomatoes are back on the table, but you still won't get any decent pico de gallo with hot peppers being pulled off the shelves.

I figure the FDA wouldn't know shit from shinola, whether it was in a can or on a chili. I'll be sticking to my homegrown.
