Canadian Case Of Bird Flu Not H5N1 Strain

This is good news, but on the same day we find out that this Administration has no plan to fight bird flu.

(MSNBC/AP)The Bush administration lacks a comprehensive plan for testing and monitoring bird flu in commercial poultry, a federal audit says.

The industry is testing every flock for bird flu, but the tests are voluntary and there is no method for reporting findings to the government, the Agriculture Department’s inspector general said Tuesday
Good thing the Canadian case wasn't the H5N1 strain. With the scare of bird flu being in North America, I hope this pushes this Administration to get their act together.
