Instead of or in addition to tomatoes it might be jalapenos.

It was the jalapenos - - The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has found a jalapeno pepper contaminated with a strain of salmonella that has sickened more than 1,100 people, officials said on Monday.

"FDA has found a genetically matched Salmonella stpaul isolate from a distribution center called Agricola Zaragosa in McAllen, Texas," Dr. David Acheson, associate commissioner for foods at the FDA, told reporters in a telephone briefing. The FDA said the pepper was picked in Mexico but may not have been contaminated there.
