Bird Flu Found at Tennessee Chicken Farm Affiliated With Tyson Foods

The first case of highly pathogenic avian influenza to strike a commercial poultry flock in more than a year has been found on a Tennessee chicken farm affiliated with Tyson Foods Inc., government and company officials confirmed Sunday.

The flock of about 73,500 birds, which had been used for breeding, was being destroyed to prevent the disease from spreading further, U.S. Department of Agriculture officials said in a statement Sunday.
