Officials seize 1 million pounds of pork amid virus concerns

US border agents have seized around 1 million pounds of pork from China, over suspicions that it might contain African swine flu disease. Federal agents seized the supplies over the past week in New York. Calling it an ongoing investigation the federal agents are working with US Department of Agriculture on the issue. China has reported 112 outbreaks of the highly contagious disease since August.

Why do we import food from China again?

African swine flu in the United States by way of Chinese pork. Globalism FTW.

Ugh... why are you importing pork from China? That makes me feel ill even without the addition of African swine flu!

Why is the DHS speaking on this, rather than the FDA or USDA? It's not like they found anthrax in the food. 😂

So cook it? Don't pick your nose before you wash your hands? It's a virus not a prion.

Also, Chinese pork is given the most powerful antibiotics around ( cheaper for some reason) which eventually will spawn a super bug. Don't buy anything made in China.

Chinese food has a rep. for being contaminated by led and mercury, and they often have no morality and therefore ignore animal welfare, so who’s insane enough to buy chinese food? My government even warned not to eat chinese food in china.

I bet they still find a way to sell it into the private prison system to make a lil scratch.

Is imported food held to the same standard regarding safety as food produced here in the States?
