So, the FDA may have screwed over tomato growers. The same strain of salmonella was found on a jalapeno pepper imported from Mexico.
The Food and Drug Administration has found salmonella bacteria on a jalapeño pepper imported from Mexico and warned consumers Monday not to eat fresh jalapeños and products made with fresh jalapeños.
The bacteria was found at a distribution center in McAllen, Texas. Investigators are not yet certain where the bacteria originated.

The beef and cheddar sandwich from the Frandor Deli in the Frandor Shopping Center
My girlfriend needed to make a run to the Jewelry Doctor in the Frandor Shopping Center so we figured we’d hit up someplace in that area for lunch. I had heard a lot about Amici’s New York Style Deli, but we couldn’t find it. I didn’t realize it wasn’t quite in the Shopping Center. Since we were kind of limited on time, I didn’t feel like driving around the area to look for it. Instead, I noticed a sign for the Frando Deli. I figured that would be quick and we could grab sandwiches to go.
Good sign when we walked in. The place was packed. We made our way through the small dining room to the counter to order our meals. All of the sandwiches are already made and wrapped in plastic wrap. When you order, they take the wrap off and then give you the options to customize the sandwich. The pizza looked really good, but since we were grabbing something to go, I didn’t think that would have been a very good idea. Instead, I went with the Beef and Cheddar sandwich. The counter person asked if I wanted it heated and I passed. I also passed on the toppings which would be your general deli toppers. With the sandwich, I got a bag of BBQ chips, a small pickle spear and a medium Pepsi. The sandwich was pretty good which kind of surprised me. They must make and wrap the sandwiches every morning. The bun was fresh and soft and the meat was still a little moist. There was more shredded cheese than beef on the sandwich, but there was enough meat to make me feel like I didn’t get cheated.
