Bleeding Heartland: Eat pork that's not factory-farmed

Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland

Government officials and pork industry representatives are working
hard to convince the public that it's still safe to eat pork despite
the rapidly spreading swine flu virus that may have already infected
two Iowans. They are correct that there is no risk of contracting the
flu from eating pork. Some Mexican news reports have linked the swine
flu outbreak to conditions in factory farms owned by the Smithfield
Foods corporation. Smithfield released a statement saying the company
"has no reason to believe that the virus is in any way connected to
its operations in Mexico."
