Salmonella Outbreak: Might as well tell me I can’t eat

We’ve all, no doubt, heard about the salmonella outbreak by now. Reports first blamed tomatoes, then jalapenos and cilantro. The tomato ban was lifted last week. A new report today says that salmonella has been found in a Mexican jalapeno at a plant in Texas. Here’s the FDA page on the outbreak.

This is killing me. Figure it out already. That latest report is so contradictory and vague, I don’t know what to think. If I can’t have tomatoes, jalapenos or cilantro, you might as well tell me that I’m not allowed to have food.

    Have you been to the Austin Farmers Market yet? There ain’t no taint there from industrialized agriculture – pretty much good, clean, wholesome, and delicious! Or, you could start growing your own – which we should all start trying since it may get too expensive to ship stuff from California.
