Swine Flu: Pork Is Fine

Fear of swine flu continues to grow as nearly 100 people in the U.S. have contracted the deadly disease.

But government health officials want you to know, you cannot get the swine flu from eating pork.

Several restaurants and grocery stores around the country have been fielding questions and concerns about if it's safe to eat, ribs, porkchops and neckbones.

At the Old Kentucky BBQ in Lexington, signs are up to let folks know that swine is fine.

Jackee Schwartz, the restaurants owner, says the swine flu scare is not hurting her business at all.

She says the demand for pulled pork and ribs is up since the weather has gotten warmer.
