WHO Expert Says No Risk of Swine Flu from Pigmeat

“Right now we have no evidence to suggest that people are getting infected from exposure to pork or to pigs so right now we have zero evidence that exposure to meat leads to infection,” Keiji Fukuda, acting WHO director-general for health security and environment, told a teleconference. Fukuda was commenting on reports that some countries may ban imports of meat from Mexico or other countries where swine flu has been detected. The WHO advises that the swine influenza virus is killed by cooking temperatures of 70 degrees Celsius (160 degrees Fahrenheit), corresponding to the general guidance for preparing pork and other meat.
