New York Times posts an editor's note regarding the trichinosis study

Following the discussion of free-range trichinosis, the Center for a Livable Future reports that the New York Times today published an editor's note on the op-ed page (also available online at the bottom of the original article):
An Op-Ed article last Friday, about pork, neglected to disclose the source of the financing for a study finding that free-range pigs were more likely than confined pigs to test positive for exposure to certain pathogens. The study was financed by the National Pork Board.
Ethicurean today discusses the larger context of antibiotic use in animal food production, which worries me more than free-range pigs do.
