The Canadian Swine Health Board says the pork industry can learn a lot from an incident last week in which operations at a Canadian pork processing plant were temporarily suspended over fears of foot and mouth disease.

Last Monday inspectors with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency limited activities at a pork processing plant in Red Deer, Alberta after the discovery of an animal with symptoms similar to foot and mouth disease.

Movement of pigs into the plant was halted for approximately 48 hours until laboratory tests confirmed it was not foot and mouth and operations were allowed to resume. Canadian Swine Health Board chair Florian Possberg says the incident can teach the industry a lot.
