Can Eastern Samar Governor Ben Evardone still enjoy his favorite pork dishes in peace?

The politiko demanded better explanation from the Department of Agriculture (DA) about the real state of the local hog-raising industry, following reports of an African Swine Fever scare hitting the scene.

New DA Secretary William Dar has offered an explanation, but Evardone is not satisfied.

“Can the DA please inform the public on the true state of our hogs in the country. Is it still safe to eat pork after hundreds of hogs died of unknown diseases?,” he said.

“It’s not a question of availability of supply of pork; it’s a question of safety. The DA is missing the whole point.”
