No, according to the United States Centers for Disease Control, the H1N1 virus is not spread by eating pork or foods containing pork.

Here are some tips:
**Cook all pork products to an internal temperature of 160 degrees; use a meat thermometer to be sure, and do not allow raw meat to cross-contaminate foods that are ready to be served.

**Choose lean cuts of fresh pork such as pork chops, steaks and roasts, instead of pork sausage, bacon, other processed pork products that are high in fat and sodium.
