STATEMENT REGARDING AVIAN INFLUENZA


Ensuring the well-being of the flocks on Ohio's egg, chicken and turkey farms is a top priority, which is why the state's poultry farming community is taking the findings of avian influenza (AI) across the U.S. very seriously. To date, the disease has not been found in Ohio, and keeping their birds healthy and protecting them from disease is farmers' immediate and ongoing focus.

It is important to know that these strains of AI are not a public health risk. Further, consumers cannot catch AI by eating eggs, chicken or turkey. As a reminder, however, all egg and meat products should be cooked thoroughly to reduce the risk of foodborne illnesses.
