I heard on NPR that countries in Asia, according to Associated Press, were banning pork from the U.S. I searched on the internet and found the exact
opposite in most stories. Here's a link from reuters stating the ban is in affect.
"Six countries -- China, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, the Philippines, Thailand and the United Arab Emirates -- have banned meat and pork products from some
parts of the United States in the wake of the swine flu scare, the U.S. Trade Representative's office said."
"Russia banned imports of all meat -- including beef and poultry -- not treated thermally from Mexico, Texas, California and Kansas, and raw pork
imports from eight other U.S. states, Central America and the Caribbean.
China, the world's largest pork consumer, also banned imports of live pigs and pork products from Mexico, Texas, California and Kansas."
