Dr. Wagstrom and other animal and public health officials are available for one-on-one interviews by contacting Cindy Cunningham at the National Pork Board at (515) 210-1263 or between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. central time at 515-223-2600.

Previously, the National Pork Board issued a statement that called attention to The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) statement posted on its Web site (www.cdc.gov/flu/swine):

"Swine influenza viruses are not spread by food. You cannot get swine influenza from eating pork or pork products."

The CDC and other health organizations continue to caution that the virus is contagious and is spreading from humans to humans. The CDC has said it has not found any evidence to indicate that any of the illnesses resulted from contact with pigs.

Furthermore, the World Organization for Animal Health said today the flu virus spreading around the world should not be called "swine flu" since no pig was found ill and the virus also contains avian and human components.
