Contaminated Water! FDA finds salmonella match on Mexican pepper farm
NowPublic Contributors Nailed It! In a previous story NowPublic's SOLARLIFE asked, could it be the irrigation or water they wash the peppers in? Exactly right, irrigation water and Serrano peppers from a farm in Mexico tested positive for Salmonella says the FDA. Mexico denied that their country had anything to do with the nearly 1000 sick people in the United States. Sorry Mexico, your immigrant's, are responsible again!

David Acheson, the Food and Drug Administration’s associate commissioner for foods, announced the break in the outbreak investigation July 30 during a House subcommittee hearing focused on traceability in the fresh produce industry.
The farm has not yet been publicly identified. Acheson said FDA is investigating where the Mexican grower distributed its product in that country before it entered the U.S.
More than 1,300 people in 43 states, Washington, D.C., and Canada have been affected in the ongoing outbreak, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
