Paula Deen, Apparently Now an Expert Medical Adviser, Tells Us to Reject the Myths and "Enjoy a Porkchop Tonight"
"You can eat all the pork you want. You are not going to catch the flu from eating pork," says Paula.
While this is all fine and dandy (and true -- you can't get the flu from eating pork), it strikes me as odd that Paula would come out now to defend the company when, to use her reasoning, she's not an "expert" in these "kind of issues."
Sales on pork products must be really bad, though. Otherwise I doubt Paula would include this statement in the Smithfield press release:
"'Honey if you want that pork chop, eat it'," Deen said. "In fact, you come down to (my restaurant) the Lady and Sons, and I'll even cook it for ya. And sit down and have one with ya!"
Yeahhhhhhh... if anyone sees Paula Deen cooking porkchops herself in that restaurant, you let me know.
