Cursed swine!

No way this is happening at the same time as pork flu just out of coincidence. I suspect a far more nefarious plot, one that might have been in the works for hundreds of years.

The time is nigh for the Porkapolypse!

The Pork is fighting back, after years of Opression from humans, its taking its Queue from the Cows [ see mad cow ] and the birds [ Bird flu aka avian influenza ] it has now joined the ranks of the animals fighting back against humans in dirty underhanded tactics.


GOOD FOR THEM !

methinks though im gonna maybe only eat TOFU till animals stop killing us off, and then once TOFU catches on, ill switch to something less contrary, like Chick Peas.

What's with all the Listeria in the last year?

thank the conservatives and deregulation for it.

they just prefer/or have companies themselves ensure their stuff is good (probably on the cheap). Rather than have more strict government inspection.

meat inspection is provincial,

Ministry of Agriculture for Ontario increased safety guidelines in 2005:

For the record, I had to get lawyers involved a few years back regarding 'Pillars' products.

I bit down into my lunchmeat sandwich and broke off some of a tooth on A BUCKSHOT. They seemed to have no idea how it got there...and I'm pretty sure shooting animals is a legally unacceptable way of performing mass production.

So i don't trust those guys as far as I could throw them.

Yikes.
