Pork producers want us to call swine flu something else

Email

Don't call it swine flu. That's what the Wisconsin Pork Producers are asking us.

The strain has pig, poultry and human elements but it's only being spread by people, and there's no evidence of the strain in any U.S. pigs.

Tammy Vaasenn, the operations director for the state's Pork Producers, says consumers seem to be getting the message that the virus is not spread through pork products.
