    Default Get Ready For Shortage Of Pickled Pork Lips And Pigs Feet!

    http://www.wwl.com/Northshore-plant-...-and-p/6384123

    Northshore plant producing pickled pork lips and pigs' feet burns

    State fire investigators spent today at a Louisiana plant that sold pickled pigs' lips by the gallon through grocery and convenience stores around the Southeast.

    Arson unit supervisor Donald Carter said they don't yet know what started the fire. It broke out Monday, when Farm Fresh Foods Suppliers in St. Helena Parish was closed.

    The plant between Pine Grove and Montpelier made and packaged gallon jars of snacks including pickled eggs and pork lips, feet and hocks, and smaller jars of those and of pickled sausages and quail eggs.

    It sold direct to stores within 150 miles of Mobile, Ala., and to chains including Wal-Mart, Winn Dixie and Piggly Wiggly.

    Plant manager Matthew Dufour says that the interior was largely gutted, and much of the roof collapsed.

    With everything else going on and now this! No pickled pigs lips? I'll have to change my choice of snacks now.

    I used to eat pickled pigs feet as a kid. Then I found out what they were. I refuse to eat pig lips unless they are incorporated into Slim Jims or other spiced sausage products.

    I will never be able to sufficiently express my sincerest gratitude to all of you. Never.

    Just so we're all clear: This does NOT adversely effect bacon supplies, correct?
