HPAI detected in U.S. cattle

On March 25, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced that Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI) was detected in dairy cattle in Texas and Kansas. Subsequently, cases in cattle have also been confirmed in New Mexico and Michigan.
On April 1, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported a human tested positive for HAPI after exposure to dairy cattle presumed to be infected.
Despite these recent detections, there is not a threat to food safety and the risk to human health remains low.
ANAC has been in communication with the Dairy Farmers of Canada and the Canadian Meat Council regarding the situation and will continue dialogue to ensure we are informed of developments in Canada. ANAC will update members if new information becomes available.
