PVO: Some pork products
from Luzon positive for ASF
BY MARCHEL P. ESPINA
Negros Occidental Provincial Veterinarian Renante Decena said yesterday that some pork products from Luzon have tested positive for African swine fever (ASF) virus.
A clinical laboratory report from the Bureau of Animal Industry, dated October 15, showed that tested samples from confiscated hotdog, longganisa, and tocino were found positive for the dreaded virus, he said.He said this further supports their stand to prohibit the entry of pork products, not only pork, to the province as the transmission of the virus in processed meat is faster.
