- Mexico sez: hey, we don't got no -- sorry, skipping the offensive stereotypical retort here -- we've found no salmonella (and the U.S. responds, "did too!")
- Wal-Mart is taking the claim that some guy got salmonella from their peppers "very seriously" -- and as the Consumerist points out, this is what "companies use over and over again to appear contrite without actually saying or doing anything." Stay tuned on this one.
- This guy (director of the Paleobiotics Lab) says "our sick, leaky guts" should share the blame.
- Oh, great, let's just irradiate everything to oblivion, just in case, to be safe you know.
And finally, it's nice to see that someone took my Law and Order meme literally:
"Holding a tomato in one hand and a jalapeño in the other, Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.), chairman of the Energy and Commerce Committee's oversight and investigations subcommittee, pressed the FDA on whether the tomato was still a "vegetable of interest" or had been cleared. "
Vegetable of interest -- heh.
P.S. Still no salmonella outbreak at the Durham Farmer's Market. I'm just saying.
