MUHealth Alert FAQ: H1N1 Influenza
Can I get H1N1 influenza from eating or preparing pork products?
No. Influenza is not spread by food. In fact, even though it has swine influenza genes, this particular strain has rarely infected pigs. You cannot get H1N1 influenza from eating pork or pork products. Eating properly handled and cooked pork products is safe.
