The lives of hundreds of thousands of pigs from farms across 27 states are in jeopardy as is any affordable summer cook-out this year thanks to a deadly virus. The porcine epidemic diarrhea virus is killing pigs but is thankfully not harmful to humans. The deadly result of this epidemic is driving up pork prices...45 percent so far.
If you are thinking of cooking more beef, forget it. Drought in some of the cattle producing areas has made beef prices go up as well. That leaves us with chicken, fish and veggie burgers.
