Yep. And nows a great time to buy pork products. This swine flu thing has pork producers reeling to try and unload their products. They're getting killed on prices. I kind of feel bad for them. But I suppose their misfortune is good for us.
I just heard last night that there was the first report of human to pig transmission of the virus. But Secretarty of Agriculture Tom Vilsack (former Governor of Iowa so I don't know that I completley trust him) put out a report saying that the virus is a respritory illness and that there's no way to contract the H1N1 (Swine) flu virus from eating pork.
So get out there and stock up. Support US farmers and get some great prices on pork.
Now if only we can start a bovine flu scare...
