A woman got infected from a worm which came from improperly cook pork.

doctors are seeing more of these cases appearing in hospitals.
I just want to warn you guys of this issue. People aren't washing their hands properly or cook pork improperly.

Wash your hands. Make sure you cover any open cuts. Wash EVERYTHING immediately after putting the pork in the pan. Cook it completely.

Most of what eats pigs eats humans. Apparently, we taste the same.

I think the key is to cook the pork. Cook the pork!

I caught the local grocery chain's butcher blowing his nose into his hands and wiping them on his apron before resuming work.
Nowadays I just walk with my chabbad nieghbors to the local kosher butchers.

Cook pork?

Amazing that such things must be said, but I have a customer that tried Trichinellosis on for size recently because she just doesn't like overcooked meat supposedly. All she will say is "not pleasant" regarding her experience.

Yes yes indeed. Avoiding any problems with uncooked pork. And yet I learned, during a "visit" to a kosher meat packing plant, that Rabbis sneeze too (and continue to work a 10 hour day in a cold plant). Sanitary, you ask? I testify before you.... "NO!".

Cook the meat, I say. It's not just to warm our insides. When we don;t cook the pork, we are just playing with the fire....

Cooking with parasites aside, for the moment....Is there any truth to the idea of avoiding aspirin after eating pork?

Apparently even Bear Grylls will cook his SPAM thoroughly - freshly dispatched Zebra on the other hand holds no such precautions. What is shocking is his apparent lack of table manners - being a Brit he should at least know how to hold a knife and fork properly. laugh

I heard this on the radio the other day, I understood it to be undercooked pork, and in Mexico to boot.

We went to an Outback Steakhouse several years ago, my wife ordered pork chops, and the waitress said "how would you like those done?".. We both looked at her like she had 3 heads. She must have realized her mistake, and made up some dodge about their pigs being raised indoors.

Needless to say, we asked for the manager, and he took her aside to set things straight. I think, being a steakhouse, she just regurgitated (maybe a poor choice of words) the same rote statement she said after every order, and rather than admit her mistake, tried to tap dance around it.

But can you imagine someone saying to her, in reply, "oh, medium, I guess".

Am I wrong on this? I know they say if you freeze pork then no trichina survive, but yikes!
