APHIS: tests approved for AI may increase
The USDA's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) has proposed
increasing the number of tests approved for avian influenza used in breeding and
commercial poultry from two to four.
According to the APHIS, the two additional tests can provide results
quickly, making them useful as part of a response and containment plan in the
event of an outbreak.
Additionally, APHIS is also proposing to increase the frequency of required
AI tests to 90-day intervals instead of 180-day intervals.
Comments regarding these proposals may be submitted on or before 28
