  • The U.S. government says a flock of 31,600 breeder pullets, or young hens, used to produce meat, was infected with avian flu in Madison County, Arkansas.
  • Last week, officials in Alabama also confirmed an outbreak at a commercial farm in a flock of 296,500 gamebirds.
  • Avian flu has wiped out more than 60 million U.S. chickens, turkeys, and other birds since 2022.
  • Previous outbreaks caused sharp spikes in the price of eggs and chicken and turkey meat.
