    Just saw this too.
    I'm bummed because I was planning on making a few tacos with some of that pork butt I smoked the other day and haven't yet picked up my cilantro or jalapenos.

    I'm sure I got that and don't know from what 2 weeks ago. 4 days and nites on the throne straight.

    Still not over it yet. I was sick with no energy or appetite for many days since. I know the same night we had a salad with some tomatoes, but I bought the "safe ones" with the vines. Wife was fine, but I am on meds to surpress my immune system for a skin rash. I may go to the doc this week, but that probably means more meds.[​IMG]

    One med after another. If I wasan't on the first, I probably would have been fine.

    Take whatever precaution you have to.

    I don't eat Japs so that was not an issue.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    Good luck!

    Well looks like they're pretty confident that the Jalaps are the main cause:

    Salmonella found in a Mexican-grown jalapeno

    Pepper in Texas plant offers clues to outbreak's source

    Thanks for the heads up! Now if I get the angry-a$$ this week, I'll know it was from those tasty ABT's I had Sunday :'(
  12. I suspect that IF jalapenos are the culprit we will find out that whatever the peppers were used in were not cooked to a safe temp.

    Since ABT's are smoked at 200+ for at least one hour (sometimes longer) I would think that the temp would get high enough (165*) to kill the Salmonella bacteria.

    I am not a Scientist....and I did not play one on the info from the link below.

    COOK: Cook to Safe Temperatures
    Use a clean food thermometer when measuring the internal temperature of meat, poultry, casseroles, and other foods to make sure they have reached a safe minimum internal temperature:
    • Beef, veal, and lamb steaks, roasts, and chops to 145 °F.
    • All cuts of pork to 160 °F.
    • Ground beef, veal and lamb to 160 °F.
    • Egg dishes, casseroles to 160 °F.
    • All poultry should reach a safe minimum internal temperature of 165 °F.
    • Stuffed poultry is not recommended. Cook stuffing separately to 165 °F.
    • Leftovers to 165 °F.
    • Fish should reach 145 °F as measured with a food thermometer.
    • Bring sauces, soups, and gravy to a boil when reheating.
    • Reheat other leftovers thoroughly to at least 165 °F.

    They are stressing not to eat them raw, like luv said ABT's are cooked long enough they should be relatively safe
