Just when you thought it was safe...

…to go back in the produce aisle.

We still have more questions that answers regarding the salmonella outbreak.

We do know this:
*That the last confirmed case of poisoning was on July 24th.
*That the Serrano and jalapeno peppers were tainted.
*That other produce (including tomatoes) was processed in those same plants and grown on those same farms.

What they don’t know is how the tainted produce could have created an outbreak that large.

And what they don’t want you to know is that in their testing they found other strains of salmonella in Mexico in jalapenos, basil and cilantro. They have put some of those sources on import alert, meaning they are currently subject to additional inspection.

Ain’t NAFTA great? Bush and the other pols in Washington will do anything to avoid showing Mexico in a bad light right now. Between now and November all bad news from south of the border will be kept quiet. We wouldn’t want to cause the voters to ask embarrassing questions now…would we?
