PERKINS TWP.

The swine flu hasn't caused any cases of sickness in Erie County so far, but employees of the J.H. Routh Packing Co. are already sick of the swine flu scare.

The company, coping with a sudden decline in demand for pork products, has altered its work schedule in an attempt to cut costs, said David Stearns, executive vice president and chief operating officer at the company.
