November 7, 2019

Mekeni Food Corp in the Philippines has vowed to trace the source of the ASF virus that made it to their products. The hotdogs and skinless longganisa from the company tested positive for ASF. Mekeni voluntarily recalled all its pork-based products on October 26. Operations of its pork-based processing area have also been suspended and the facility has been cleaned and disinfected. The company said it has engaged a third-party company to swab and test the facility to make sure it is virus-free before resuming operations.
