Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack announced USDA's intention to purchase an additional $30 million in pork products in FY 2009 for federal food and nutrition assistance programs.

"These purchases will assist pork producers who are currently struggling due to depressed market conditions and reflects the Obama Administration's ongoing work to support struggling producers," said Vilsack. "This action will help mitigate further downward prices, stabilize market conditions, stimulate the economy, and provide high quality, nutritious food to recipients of USDA's nutrition programs."
