And we continue to trade w/ this "valued" partner who allows its farmers to defecate on their plants as a way of fertilizing them. Dear God Almighty.
Yes we are living in very backwards times. So much for our government putting Americans first.

The worse part of the obvious incompetency courtesy of the FDA is that they knew Mexico's jalapeno peppers were a source of contamination 2 weeks prior to their announcement of the serrano peppers' induced outbreak.

Once again a prime example of the lives of Americans being devalued by a government entity in the name of protecting it's illegitimate co-dependant, clingy, worthless step child.

"Laboratory testing has confirmed that both a sample of serrano pepper and a sample of irrigation water collected by agency investigators on a farm in the state of Nuevo Leon, Mexico, contain Salmonella saintpaul with the same genetic fingerprint as the strain of bacteria that is causing the current outbreak in the United States," the agency said in a news release.
A contaminated jalapeno pepper had been identified two weeks ago at another Mexican farm in a different part of the country, which turned the months-long search for a source of the nationwide outbreak away from fresh tomatoes.

Remember the Alamo! That used to mean something. Does anyone remember the Alamo these days?

What the heck are we doing letting Mexico get so involved in American business?
