Food Safety & Human Health

The egg and poultry supplies are safe. All shipments of poultry and eggs are tested to ensure the absence of avian influenza (AI) before moving into the food supply. Always cook poultry products to 165 degrees.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has stated that the risk of transmission to humans is low. The strains of HPAI that are currently circulating in North America have no history of causing human illness.
