Department of Agriculture (DA) Secretary William D. Dar and Department of Health (DOH) Secretary Francisco T. Duque jointly declared that “pork and pork products are safe to eat,” after partaking different pork dishes at a boodle fight on September 9, 2019.

Secretary Dar stressed that as long as the hogs passed through the proper process of slaughtering and preparation, the public should not fear eating pork. Meanwhile, Secretary Duque declared that local meat does not impose a threat to human health, and reiterated that as long as it is prepared and cooked properly, it is safe for human consumption.
