Please help ensure that anyone who keeps birds are aware of the risk and actions they can take to protect their birds. Remember, advice from the Public Health Agency is that the risk to public health from the virus is very low, however the general public is advised not to touch or pick up birds that are dead, or appear to be sick or dying. The Food Standards Agency has confirmed that Avian Influenza does not pose a food safety risk for UK consumers. Thoroughly cooked poultry and poultry products, including eggs, are safe to eat.
Further advice can be found on the DAERA website.
