Poland has had African Swine Fever in its wild boar population of about 120,000 pigs and for four years has been trying to hunt them to extinction.

Yet Canada has continued to allow pork imports from Poland.

Federal trade records show that last year Canada imported more than $25 million worth of pork from Poland.

Among things that are not clear is whether the disease has stricken farmed hog herds in Poland and if Canadians imported any feed ingredients from Poland that might contain the virus.
