Trichinellosis is a zoonotic disease caused by the nematode
Trichinella spiralis.  Domestic pigs are the primary source of infection.  Although prevalence in the US is low, the disease can be severe in humans.  The USDA, along with the National Pork Board and the pork processing industry has set up a Trichinae Certification Program to facilitate US fresh meat pork exports.  The program should enhance the ability of producers to export pork and pork products to overseas markets.
