U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Q&A on Swine Flu:

Can people catch swine flu from eating pork?

No. Swine influenza viruses are not transmitted by food. You can not get 
swine influenza from eating pork or pork products. Eating properly 
handled and cooked pork and pork products is safe. Cooking pork to an 
internal temperature of 160°F kills the swine flu virus as it does other 
bacteria and viruses.


Bon appetit.
