Pork is one of the world’s widely-eaten meats (especially in China, where most is eaten). But of course pork comes from pigs – wonderful creatures who are intelligent, funny and kind (they sing to their piglets!) and also very clean animals (the mud is due to keeping cool, as pigs have no sweat glands). Pork is not just an unkind food, but very high in cholesterol as a one of the no-no ‘red meats’. Recycle packaging at supermarket bag bins.
Keep faux meats away from pets as they smell/taste/look like meat, but contain unsafe ingredients like onion, mushrooms etc. Read more on food safety for people & pets.
