Salmonella found in irrigation water in Mexico

The FDA has found the same strain of Salmonella that has sickened so many Americans on a farm in Mexico. Dr. David Atcheson of the FDA says they have found the likely source of the Salmonella.

"We have a positive sample in water used for irrigation and serrano peppers from the same farm that have matched outbreak strain," he said.

The FDA has added Mexican Serrano peppers to it's warning. They say people should not be eating raw serrano peppers now.
