    Tyson Slaughters 15,000 Hens After Outbreak

    ORLANDO, Fla. -- A major food producer is taking drastic measures after avian flu was discovered in its chickens.

    Officials with Tyson Foods said some of their hens tested positive for the disease in Arkansas. Authorities said the strain of the virus is not harmful to humans, but Tyson decided to slaughter and bury 15,000 hens after they showed signs of exposure.Officials at the Centers for Disease Control said a 2004 outbreak of the same virus at a Canadian poultry plant did make two people sick.A representative for Tyson Foods said the company is also stepping up its surveillance of avian flu in the area as a precaution. Authorities have not ordered any recalls of Tyson products.

    Me too. Was looking on the FDA's site for more on this but didn't find anything on the front-page. Their apparent lack of action on this doesn't do anything for my faith in the system.

    I did find this, though. Public Health Advisory on Albuterol Inhalers

    Re: Avian flu found in Tyson chickens

    Why does it seem like every time a bad batch of chicken hits the US it has "Tyson" written all over it? I haven't bought that brand in the last 5 years since they had another problem.

    PS, does anyone else see a big ad in the middle of BWM's post, or am I infected?
