280 pigs quarantined with swine flu symptoms
Caught virus from piggery owners and staff
First case of swine flu in pigs in Australia
AUTHORITIES believe up to 2000 pigs with swine flu caught it from a sick farmer and his staff.

NSW Health is testing the farmer from the Dunedoo piggery in the state's Central West and his workers to confirm the source of the outbreak.

Other pig farmers and the NSW Food Authority moved quickly last night to allay any consumer fears, telling people pork was safe to eat, The Daily Telegraph reports.

Oh dear me. This is going to have a huge impact on the pork industry.
