Virus hitting pig farms in Illinois

Illinois pork farmers are affected by a new virus that's killing off piglets all across the country. Jim Fraley  with the Illinois Farm Bureau says more than 200 pigs have tested positive here. Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea, known as PED appeared last April on hog farms across the state and in at least 27 others. PED causes severe diarrhea, nausea, and dehydration and its already wiped out at least one-million pigs across the U.S. The virus is not transferred to people who eat pork.
