In October 2009, the first case of 2009 H1N1 influenza virus in a pig in the United States was confirmed. Pig infections with 2009 H1N1 flu have been found in other countries, including Canada, Australia and Argentina. As a pork producer, you may have questions about the difference between the 2009 H1N1 influenza virus and common swine influenza viruses. This document addresses what is known about the swine influenza viruses that have been found in pigs and what workers can do to avoid getting sick."
