Tomato's cleared, jalapeno's now suspect

Officials investigating the salmonella outbreak now are looking at jalapeŮo peppers as a leading suspect for spreading the bacteria that has sickened hundreds across the U.S. over the past three months, according to people familiar with the probe.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention initially blamed tomatoes. That led to industry losses of hundreds of millions of dollars, according to the National Restaurant Association, as consumers cut down on consumption and restaurants pulled them from menus."

I cant see how they come up with Japs being the culprit. I mean outside of groups of that are not right in the head..sorta like this group...who eats raw Japs. Yups dont eat em etc. Best bet is just dont eat any kinda fresh produce from Mexico. They fertilize stuff with human caca down there...or so I heard.

I don't think the Feds have a clue what's causing this.
