New York Times Pork Products Revisited!

Why Don't We Import Pork Products from Spain and Italy?

DSC00127.jpgDSC00127.jpgDSC00127.jpgA few days ago I blogged about an article on Free-Range Trichinosis

By JAMES E. McWILLIAMS in the NY Times. Well, well, well. Look at this addendum:

"Editors' Note: April 14, 2009
An Op-Ed article last Friday, about pork, neglected to disclose the source of the financing for a study finding that free-range pigs were more likely than confined pigs to test positive for exposure to certain pathogens. The study was financed by the National Pork Board."

Ha. Do you think the only reason we don't get great piggies is health? Ha! again, at the risk of being redundant. Do I sense a conspiracy on the part of the American Pork Board? Perhaps, if they focussed more on quality than on making money, they wouldn't have to worry about free-range products. Ya think? oink oink.
