Norway - Biggest retailer may ban Danish pork

Things get ever more interesting in Scandinavia.

The Norwegians are right. 

Things are very much worse in corrupt Britain, so while it may have to be fish for Christmas in Norway, Britain's very dangerous veterinary establishment will be facing porridge.

For the non-English speakers, "porridge" aside from being Scotland's national dish is also Cockney slang for gaol (or jail) as anyone born in London or Essex will know.

It is not just the writer, Britain's recently sacked Agricultural Minister Owen Paterson is also hot on the tail of Britain's greedier landowners and the closely associated twitchers (bird watchers) and the  "Green Blob" crime wave.

Anyway, here is Norway on the related subject of the safety of Danish pork.

Norway's biggest grocery retailer and wholesaler is considering putting a halt to the import of Danish pork over MRSA concerns.

The use of antibiotics in Denmark's pig industry may lead NorgesGruppen, Norway's dominant retailer, to stop all imports of Danish pork

NorgesGruppen, which holds a 39.3 percent market share of Norway's grocery industry, is considering dropping Danish pork in favour of importing from countries where the use of antibiotics is less widespread. The wholesaler's reevaluation of Danish pork follows a Norwegian professor's warning that the consumption of meat from Danish pigs could lead to an outbreak of the antibiotic-resistant MRSA...

...According to Dagens Næringsliv, Danish pork is especially popular in Norway at Christmas time. 

NorgesGruppen is expected to make a final decision regarding Danish pork sometime in the coming months.
