Salmonella investigation leads to jalapenos in Texas
Federal officials are warning consumers to stay away from raw jalapeños after salmonella was traced to a supplier in Texas.

More than 1,200 people in 43 states, the District of Columbia and Canada have been sickened by salmonella. Some of the earliest cases showed up on the Navajo Nation in New Mexico.

Indian Health Service and the New Mexico Department of Health believed the Navajos were sickened by raw tomatoes. It's possible they may still be a cause of the outbreak but the Food and Drug Administrationsaid they are safe to eat now.
