The salmonella outbreak topped headlines for what seemed like forever, as over 1,400 people were infected with the rare bacterial strain known as salmonella saintpaul.

Hundreds of people had to be hospitalized, and at least two deaths have been linked to the outbreak to date, which stretched across the U.S. and Canada.

The CDC reported Thursday though that the outbreak has come to an end, for good.

The CDC, along with the FDA launched their investigation into the outbreak over its run, and linked it to tomatoes, jalapeno peppers, as well as serrano peppers.

All of the produce was grown in Mexico, and is reportedly no longer in circulation.

The CDC confirmed that the last case reported was on August 11th, with levels now back to normal.
