Chile detects bird flu at poultry producer Agrosuper
SAG said it plans to cull the affected birds and quarantine the area to prevent the infectious disease from spreading. No humans have been affected by the outbreak, it said.
Specialized laboratories are working to determine what strain of bird flu has infected the animals and once the results are available SAG will decide what further sanitary measures need to be taken.
Agrosuper said that the turkey plant, operated by its Sopraval unit, is located in rural Quilpue. ■
