Avian Influenza Update:

 

The recent outbreak of the Avian Influenza in Midwest farms has had a major impact on the egg industry. As a result, approximately 39 million birds have been lost which has led to increased volatility in the market and expected supply shortages. We are working diligently at finding alternative egg and poultry options for the children of Nassau County so that we can continue to provide healthy, nutritious meals. We thank you for your patience.

 

 

Food Safety & Health:

 

  • Avian influenza (AI or bird flu) is caused by influenza viruses that occur naturally among wild birds. AI has been around for over 100 years, and can infect all types of birds, not just chickens.
  • Avian Influenza has shown no transmission to humans and is not a food safety risk.
  • USDA researchers have concluded that egg pasteurization and cooking is effective in destroying the Avian Influenza virus if present.
