"You know y'all, the Secretary of Agriculture has said it's safe to eat pork," said Deen, restaurateur, best-selling author and the host of "Paula's Home Cooking" and "Paula's Party" on the Food Network. "You can eat all the pork you want. You are not going to catch the flu from eating pork."

After witnessing what she calls myths and misinformation surrounding the safety of pork, Deen was moved to speak out on the subject. She decided to make her views public when she considered the hardship many were experiencing due to a misunderstanding regarding pork safety.

"There's a lot of people that's been affected by this," Deen said. "It also affects our pork farmers, our truck drivers, our grocery stores. It affects the whole economy."

For her part, Deen knows exactly what she will say to anyone who is concerned that H1N1 makes pork unsafe.

"I'd say to them, 'Honey if you want that pork chop, eat it'," Deen said. "In fact, you come down to (my restaurant) the Lady and Sons, and I'll even cook it for ya. And sit down and have one with ya!"
