Bird flu found on Tyson contracted farm in Tennessee
This past weekend, the U.S. Department of Agriculture confirmed it had detected a strain of highly pathogenic avian influenza, or HPAI, in a commercial flock of chicken on a south Tennessee farm.
Officials in Alabama are closely monitoring poultry operations here after thousands of chickens in Lincoln County, Tennessee, were destroyed after avian influenza was found in a commercial breeder flock.
It's the first confirmed bird flu case at a commercial farm this year.
HPAI does not pose a threat to the food supply, and no affected animals entered the food chain, the statement said. The farm in Tennessee's Lincoln County, along with almost 30 other farms in 6.2 mile radius, has been placed under quarantine. The company said that it doesn't expect its chicken business to be disrupted, but the outbreak sent jitters through Wall Street.

The highly pathogenic form of the virus can be deadly to domesticated chickens and turkeys.

"We have never had a case of high path avian influenza in domestic poultry in the better part of a decade in the state of MI..."
