    The largest fresh egg producer in the US has found bird flu in chickens at Texas and Michigan plants

    The largest producer of fresh eggs in the U.S. said Tuesday it had temporarily halted production at a Texas plant after bird flu was found in chickens, and officials said the virus had also been detected at poultry facility in Michigan.

    FILE - Cases of eggs from Cal-Maine Foods, Inc., await to be handed out by the Mississippi Department of Agriculture and Commerce employees at the Mississippi State Fairgrounds in Jackson, Miss., on Aug. 7, 2020. The largest producer of fresh eggs in the United States said Tuesday, April 2, 2024 that it has stopped production at a Texas plant after bird flu was found in chickens there. Cal-Maine Foods, Inc. said in a statement that approximately 1.6 million laying hens and 337,000 pullets, about 3.6% of its total flock, were destroyed after the infection, avian influenza, was found at the facility in Parmer County, Texas.

    In Texas, Ridgeland, Mississippi-based Cal-Maine Foods, Inc. said in a statement that approximately 1.6 million laying hens and 337,000 pullets, about 3.6% of its total flock, were destroyed after the infection, avian influenza, was found at the facility in Parmer County, Texas.

    The plant is on the Texas-New Mexico border in the Texas Panhandle about 85 miles (137 kilometers) southwest of Amarillo and about 370 miles (595 kilometers) northwest of Dallas.

    “The Company continues to work closely with federal, state and local government officials and focused industry groups to mitigate the risk of future outbreaks and effectively manage the response,” according to the statement.

    "Cal-Maine Foods is working to secure production from other facilities to minimize disruption to its customers," the statement said.

    The company said there is no known bird flu risk associated with eggs that are currently in the market and no eggs have been recalled.

    Eggs that are properly handled and cooked are safe to eat, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.....
    ===============================
    The price of eggs is about to go up. Democrats are happy because the election is near.

    The smallest beef herd per capita ever recorded in America are also infected I hear....prices are going way up even more almost for sure, not a problem for the WOKE Death Cult that demands we largely stop eating high quality food.

    It was all those migrating birds crossing the border and Biden refused to stop them.

    The funny thing is, Texas has it's own border polices in place, so I guess we should blame Abbott for this. Clearly he should stop using razor wire and start using chicken wire.


    Meanwhile back in reality, Texas produces less than 5% of the eggs in the US.

    Michigan has found Bird flu in its egg production too. I guess Gretchen Whitmer is allowing those Canada geese to cross illegally too.

    While Texas may only produce 6.16% of eggs in the US this virus may spread to other states like it has to Michigan .


    Texas produces 513 million dozen eggs annually, or 6.16 billion eggs, which is 6.16% of the country's total egg production. Texas is one of the leading egg-producing states, along with Iowa, Indiana, Ohio, and Pennsylvania.
