Health officials say two children are among the first cases of a specific influenza virus detected in the US this year after being exposed to a sick pig at a fair. [19659004] The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services said on Friday the Influenza A (H1N2) variant was identified as the burden that disgusted visitors to the last month's Fowlerville Family Fair. It is similar to the main influenza viruses in the pig.

The children are recovering and have not been hospitalized. Officials are investigating others who got sick.

Two more cases have been confirmed in California.

The viruses are common in pigs, although they do not normally infect humans. No human-to-human transmission was detected.

They are among 17 cases of exposure reported to the US Centers for Disease Control since reporting began in 2005.
