FDA to study bird flu's impact on food safety
posted by admin on 16/03/07

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration will study the potential for bird flu to contaminate prepared foods, including fish, animal feed and poultry.

The agency will compile a list of foods and dietary supplements at risk of contamination with avian influenza because they contain meat from poultry, come from animals that live near birds or might have been in contact with infected humans, according to a document posted on the FDA Web site.

Proper cooking of chicken and other poultry kills H5N1, the deadly bird virus that has spread to some people, said the agency, based in Rockville, Md. Scientists say the virus might set off a deadly pandemic among humans. "Ready-to-eat" foods that require little or no cooking might be contaminated with virus by workers who have bird flu, exposing people who consume the foods.

"We know the effect that avian influenza has had on the public perception of food in Europe, where there have been outbreaks," said Boris Lushniak, the FDA assistant commissioner who wrote the plan, in a telephone interview yesterday. "We want food and feed safety issues to be answered, in case we were to have avian influenza in this country."
