Sounds like highly debatable claims, to me. While it is certainly possible the virus could be manmade, it is at least equally as likely that the virus could have developed naturally, as the exchange of genomic material between viruses is well established. Further, one does not acquire an influenza virus by eating the meat of infected animals, but by inoculation from the respiratory secretions of infected animals, or humans.
