Well the band of bumbling, fumbling investigators, a.k.a. The FDA, has finally found the source of the Salmonella Saintpaul outbreak that has infected over 1,200 people in the U.S. Surprise, suprise the origin has been tracked to imported serrano peppers from a farm in Nuevo Leon, Mexico. The rare strain of salmonella was found in both the farm's serrano peppers and it's irrigation water.
Let's see, in the three months the FDA has been investigating the outbreak the following theories have been proposed by the organization which controls our vital food supply:
So the FDA may have finally determined the real source of the outbreak which has hospitalized over 240 people in 43 states and D.C. Congratulations for placing so many people at risk, costing millions in tax dollars and lost revenue to finally isolate the source of this insidious and extremely rare form of salmonella. Give yourself a round of applause for doing your jobs.
Hopefully this is the conclusion of the three month demonstration on the woeful inadequacies of this agency. Or maybe we'll find out next week that it was another type of pepper. For now, perhaps it's best to lay off the salsa. Stay safe, stay healthy and stay GermAware everyone.
