A lot of good this does tomato growers now

Salmonella found on pepper; FDA strengthens warning – CNN.com

Let’s see… thousands of tomato growers ruined, all over something that was poorly sourced to begin with and which now appears to be completely incorrect. Heckuva job, whoever Bush has in charge of the FDA!

This is utterly delightful:

Before Monday’s warning, the agency had discouraged high-risk people — elderly people, infants and those with impaired immune systems — from eating serrano and jalapeƱo peppers.

Because you know how the infants love their spicy peppers. Sales of Gerber’s creamed jalapeƱos are going to collapse.
