BREAKING 7-30-08 Salmonella Strain Located in Mexican Farm Serrano Pepper & Irrigation Water
Mexico's National Sanitation and Farm Food Quality Service director Enrique Sanchez told The Associated Press last week that Mexico sent a letter to the United States on Friday "expressing our concern and our most forceful complaint against this decision."
According to AP reports, Sanchez said the FDA "has no scientific proof to make a decision that will harm Mexico enormously."
The FDA said traceback studies of food eaten by victims who became sick indicate the contaminated jalapeņo pepper originated in Mexico.
The agency concluded the distribution center was not the source of the outbreak because peppers from a number of clusters never passed through there, said Dr. David Acheson, the agency's director of food safety.
To date, all traceback studies have led to Mexico and peppers grown in the United States have not been connected to the outbreak, he said.
Peppers grown in the United States have not been connected to the outbreak that has sickened more than 1,000 people since April, said FDA spokesman Michael Herndon.
Initially, tomatoes seemed the most likely source of the outbreak. The FDA told consumers to avoid certain raw tomatoes on June 7, prompting grocery chains and some restaurants nationwide to stop offering them.
The agency subsequently lifted that ban, determining that tomatoes currently in fields and stores are safe
