I had a mince pie on Tuesday...

Also, does this mean pork won't be sold for quite some time and that the country is going to be porkless?
It's a plot, the first step on the road to Eurabia.

Save Ireland: eat a rasher.

Je ne peux pas voir les Français abandonner leur porc.

Or the Germans, Italians, Polish, Czech, and the rest of the Slavic nation for that matter.

So it's no ham on the plate this Christmas Day boys & girls.

Well I've already had a Christmas Dinner yesterday of Turkey & Ham so I can't complain

er wait a minute...

OMG!
I hate to take business away from Irish farmers but in case this isn't solved by Christmas, just so people know, most Lidl pork produce is from Northern Ireland and thus should be ok. Just had a look at a packet in the fridge.

Pretty well as much.

IIRC Marks&Sparks import theirs from across the water so if you rush down there tomorrow you might pick up a shank of ham before they disappear off the shelf until Easter sometime!

No rashers or Black and White Pudding either folks.

What I want to know who are the swine responsible for this?

...and I thought my symptoms were from a drunken sexual encounter.
Nevermind. Seriously, why is it only pork and not ham, sausages etc?

Just thinking

- this is going to skyrocket the price of all other meats and probably trigger panic buying in the shops.

Now while pig producers in the North and in Britain can provide some relief this is the busiest time of the year for them too so there will be only X amount that they can do to feed this surplus demand.

U want to shove the Mammy out the door early tomorrow and tell her to stock up before the stampede begins.

After all a man needs a bit o rasher now and again...

That's the sort of thinking that would cause panic buying!

You're flippant comment exposes (yet again) your ignorance of the basic remifications of this. The pork industry is worth 400million to the Irish economy and the government have recalled all the pork products. This is something we could do without.

And L'Chaim. Jaysus... diets make for strange bedfellows...
Yours is for religious reasons? Or because you watched Babe a few times?

Damn. :(

This is a national tragedy: no rashers, no sausages, no bacon and cabbage (cabbage without bacon - no bloody thanks!), no pork roasts, no black puddings.

If the tay turns out to be contaminated there'll be a revolution.

RTÉ News: Recall notice for Irish pork products
More importantly we could all be poisoned with the exception of a few,time to turn veg.

Ironicily, it's because I believe pork is unhealthy.
