Federal and Oregon agencies must overcome language barriers

The Food and Drug Administration was scrambling Thursday, taking the unusual step of warning restaurant and food industry professionals directly about a salmonella outbreak linked to white pepper in Oregon and three other Western states.

Normally, the FDA relies on news releases, local agencies and the industry to get tainted food off the market.

But FDA officials are making a direct appeal about tainted ground white pepper sold by Union International Food Co. in the San Francisco Bay Area over fears that many of the Asian customers who bought the product do not speak English.
