U.S. salmonella probe expands to Mexico: CNN
Fri Jul 4, 1:26 AM ET

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The investigation of a salmonella outbreak in the United States is shifting to the southern border to encompass produce imported from Mexico, CNN reported on Thursday.

U.S. health officials are struggling to find the source of the outbreak linked to certain types of tomatoes.

There have been at least 922 reported cases of salmonella food poisoning in 40 states and the District of Columbia since mid-April, CNN reported.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has alerted growers and brokers handling their products that, starting on Monday, inspectors will stop shipments from Mexico of ingredients common to Mexican cuisine, CNN reported, citing sources familiar with the investigation.

Cilantro, jalapeno peppers, serrano peppers, scallions and bulb onions are among the products to be examined, it said.

Tomatoes continue to be the primary focus of the probe but officials have expanded the investigation to include produce commonly eaten with tomatoes.

An FDA spokesman was not immediately available for comment.

ast month it was both salmonella tomatoes and E. coli Romain lettuce:

A Second Source Says: "It Must Be Mexico"
June 9, 2008 by Salmonella Lawyer

Bob Drobatz is president of operations for Petaluma Market in Santa Rosa, CA. He told the Santa Rosa Press Democrat that the tomatoes he was pulling from grocery shelves came from Mexico.

Mexico is one of the biggest suppliers of red round tomatoes and the country was conspicuously absent from the FDA "safe" list, Drobatz said....

So, where the Hell did the Salmonella Tomatoes and E. coli Romain Lettuce come from?

[Marler blog's Bill Marler] also asks: In the days of the risk of bio-terrorism, and with the advent of computer technology to pin-point where our books from Amazon are, you would think we would be able to trace-back contaminated tomatoes and lettuce a bit quicker?

Jalapeños Probed in Outbreak
Tomatoes No Longer Seen
As Prime Suspect for Salmonella

WASHINGTON -- Officials investigating the salmonella outbreak now are looking at jalapeño 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.

But as the disease continued to spread, the investigation turned to other foods commonly eaten with tomatoes, in particular to other ingredients used to make salsa. Besides jalapeño peppers, officials are looking at cilantro and Serrano peppers....

Salmonella is a feces-borne bacterium that can cause diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps. Most people recover without treatment, but in severe cases the infection can cause death. The Saintpaul strain may have contributed to the recent death of a Texas cancer patient. That's the only publicly known fatality linked so far to the current outbreak.



The Food and Drug Dung Administration is trying to flush its Made in Mexican-feces findings down the toilet because the s***'s going to hit the fan once American consumers find out NAFTA has been responsible for poisoning them?

Nah. Never. John Juanita just got back from MqMexiqaino City and would've found out and told us.</sarc>
