Default Don't eat fresh jalapenos

Jalapenos shipped from Texas border linked to salmonella...

For now, the government is strengthening its earlier precaution
against hot peppers to a full-blown warning that no one should eat
fresh jalapenos or products such as fresh salsa made from them
until it can better pinpoint where tainted ones may have sold.

Tomatoes currently on the market, in contrast, now are considered safe
to eat.

The Texas plant, Agricola Zaragoza, has suspended sales of fresh
jalapenos and recalled those shipped since June 30 shipments it said
were made to Georgia and Texas.
FDA said no other produce currently in the plant has tested positive
for salmonella, and was continuing to probe where the produce came
from and went.

But a sign over Agricola Zaragoza's spot inside a huge produce
warehouse on Monday displayed pictures of tomatoes, onions and
tomatillos alongside jalapenos suggesting the small vendor might
have handled both major suspects in the outbreak that has sickened
1,251 people.
