So you’ve heard a lot about swine flu recently. But should that make you forgo your morning bacon? According to the Center for Disease Control, no! In answer to the question: “Can people catch swine flu from eating pork?” they say:
“No. Swine influenza viruses are not transmitted by food. You cannot 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.”

Phew. So now we’re thinking of the ultimate double dog dare: a peanut butter and bacon sandwich. Simply toast your choice of bread, slather one slice with peanut butter (try Koeze Cream Nut Peanut Butter) and top with slices of bacon (try D’Artagnan Applewood Smoked Bacon) and then the second slice of bread. Pour a tall glass of milk and enjoy.
