A Misconception Of The Swine Flu Scare

pork-chops1

As your purveyor of recipes, Recipe4Living and Chew on That would like to inform you that just because we are being cautious not to contract the swine flu doesn’t mean you can’t make your regular pork, bacon or ham dishes at home. While the swine flu virus was  spread from infected pigs, it was from touching the pigs, not eating them. According to CNN.com, as long as you cook your meat until it reaches an internal temperature above 160 degrees Fahrenheit, pig meat is still safe to eat.

So cook away, and find all your swine recipes after the jump!
