China Confirms Bird
Flu In Poultry

Patricia Doyle, PhD

Hello Jeff -- Remember the US government and USDA says chickens from China are just fine. As we know, the Feds have given China the green
light to ship 'cooked, packaged' poultry products to America...with NO country of origin labeling required. How thoughtful.
Do you think China would have any scruples sending suspected bird flu infected chickens to US? I don't think so. The US had better
check the poultry from China very, very closely. Consumers should stop buying chicken, any chicken.

China has, according to this story, confirmed an outbreak of the H5N1 birdflu virus among poulty in the central province of Hunan.
A Ministry of Agriculture spokesman was cited as telling the Xinhua news agency that the outbreak was in a village in Yiyang city in Hunan and it killed 11,172 birds.
The story goes on to say that China, with millions of backyard birds and a strained medical system, is seen as key in the fight against bird flu. The country's last reported human death from bird flu was in March.
Hunan authorities have taken steps to contain the outbreak, culling close to 53,000 other birds. Agriculture officials were cited as saying that the outbreak has been brought under control. The last reported cases occurred on March 1, when a batch of chickens suddenly died in a market in Lhasa, capital of Tibet Autonomous Region.
