Backyard flocks in Oregon and wild birds in Utah and California also have been diagnosed with avian influenza, said Alan Huddleston, a U.S. Department of Agriculture veterinary medical officer. There also is a possible case in an Idaho backyard flock.

Officials have been concerned all along that more cases of avian influenza might occur in the migratory pathways of wild waterfowl, a known carrier of avian flu, said Hector Castro, the state Department of Agriculture’s communications manager.

The USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service posted a short notice on its website that highly pathogenic bird flu had been found in a backyard flock in Idaho. Further details were not immediately available Monday. Many government offices were closed for Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

Officials suspect migratory waterfowl are spreading the disease. The virus has not been detected in U.S. commercial flocks, but its appearance in backyard flocks has brought restrictions on U.S. poultry exports.

The 28-country European Union on Monday banned poultry products from Washington, Douglas County, Ore., and Idaho. Japan and Belarus added Idaho to previous bans on poultry from Washington and Oregon.

FSIS has been informed by APHIS that until further notice, due to the finding of highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) in a backyard flock in Oregon, Washington, and Idaho, the certification statement referring to the United States as free from HPAI cannot be endorsed.

Idaho poultry banned

(January 20, 2015)

The Centre for Food Safety has banned the import of poultry meat and products, including eggs, from Canyon County, Idaho, due to an H5N2 outbreak there.

The centre issued the ban after receiving notification from American authorities about the outbreak today.

About 250,000 tonnes of frozen poultry meat and 480 million eggs were imported to Hong Kong from the US from January to November last year.

The centre will liaise with American authorities and the World Organisation for Animal Health on the issue.
