13:43 EDTBCRXUSDA says bird flu found in backyard poultry in Oregon
The United States Department of Agricultures Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service confirmed the presence of highly pathogenic H5N8 avian influenza in guinea fowl and chickens from a small backyard poultry flock in Winston, Oregon. The H5N8 virus has not been found in commercial poultry anywhere in the United States and there is no immediate public health concern, as the H5N8 virus has been found in birds in other parts of the world and has not caused any human infection to date, the USDA stated. The Fly notes companies that offer or are developing flu vaccines include BioCryst (BCRX) and Novavax (NVAX). Publicly traded meat producers include Hormel Foods (HRL), Pilgrim's Pride (PPC), Sanderson Farms (SAFM) and Tyson Foods (TSN). Reference Link
