New warning issued about cooking pork
There is a new warning out for people who eat pork chops.
Consumer Reports provided us some video of tests on nearly 200 pork samples. Lab tests showed 69 percent of them were contaminated with yersinia enterocolitica.
The Centers for Disease Control estimates it sickens about 100,000 people each year. Health experts point out you can avoid the bacteria and other food borne diseases by properly cooking pork and washing your hands after touching raw meat.
