The Canadian Food Inspection Agency’s preliminary test results show porcine blood plasma, an ingredient used in feed for just weaned pigs, may be a vector that could contribute to the spread of porcine epidemic diarrhea virus, says Canada’s chief veterinarian Harpreet Kochhar.

They’re feeding pig blood to piglets? There’s a nearly 100% fatal epidemic of piglet disease in the U.S.? Sounds fishy.
