HOUSTON - Cilantro? Just say, "no!"

The Food and Drug Administration banned the green stuff from Puebla, Mexico after human feces and toilet paper were found in growing fields.

Houston wholesalers and farmers markets can still get cilantro from California, but at triple the cost! Other wholesalers simply won't sell the stuff until the FDA lifts the ban.

If you're looking to spice up your salsa, you might have a hard time finding it.
