"Swiff fo Trim Fat From Pork" CHICAGO, ILL. (AP) - Swift A Co., th* nation's largest meat packer. Wednesday announced it would adopt a policy of close trimming of fat off pork products starling Nov. 14. P. E. Petty, Swift vice-president, said, "we are departing from traditional pork trimming methods generally practiced in the meat industry." Petty said the change in pork marketing "is in line with current nationwide efforts by the meat industry and the government to stimulate pork consumption." Fat on fresh pork loins and shoulder butts will be trimmed to 14 inch, Petty said. In the past some trimming has been done by individual retail meat dealers, he added. 'The new lean look in pork will provide more protein and will give homemakers more lean meat servings per pound of pork," Petty said. MR, FARMER: We Pay Premium Prices For Meat-Type Hogs.
