Virus Increasing Pork Prices
LITTLE ROCK, AR - A virus killing millions of baby pigs could soon affect your wallet. The epidemic has killed around six million pigs across 27 states.
The Federal Government and the pork industry believe the virus originated in China. But they don't know how it got here or how it spread.
However it will likely drive up the price of pork products.
"If you are looking to buy bacon or pork, chops you know you maybe paying up to 10 percent more than you did last year in the summer."
There are no reports of the piglet-killing virus infecting people or other animals.
