Kat no pork or pork product
unless they are cooked if you would
be certain of avoiding trichinosis.
This is a warning issued by tti
lliireau of \ninial Industry of the
I'nited States Department of Ae.-icul J
ture, especially to those who are in j
the habit of eating raw ham or spo. j
lal forms of sausage containing raw +
pork and made to be eaten uncook-
ed. The records show that the num-
ber of cases of ti'ichinoisis—r. ser-
ious. painful and often fatal disease
resulting from trichinae increases
during the holidays, partly because
of hog-killing time and partly be-
cause farmers frequently make up
special forms of sausage which are
eaten without cooking.
To avoid trichinosis no form of
pork in the raw state, including dried
our smoked sausages and hams,
should be eaten. All pork used as
food should be cooked thoroughly, as
trichinae, the minute organisms
which cause this deadly disease, die
anil therefore become harmless when
subjected to a temperature of 140
degrees F. or higher. The fact thai
these organisms may remain alive]
and active in uncookeded pork makes
the latter, say department meat
specialists, a menace to life and
health wherever it is eaten.
