So far the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has confirmed that 23 U.S. poultry farms have been infected with the deadly H5N2 avian bird flu virus in a total of at least 7 states, including California, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Missouri, Kansas, and Arkansas bringing the number of dead dinner birds, turkeys, to over 1.2 million in total as officials race the clock to contain the outbreak.

While officials maintain the massive die off, culling, of the fowl should pose little to no health threat to the general public, the loss has added to growing fears that this years poultry stock will weigh in at an all-time low. And coupled with the fact that California’s extreme drought situation might affect up to 50% of America’s, fruit, vegetable and nut supply within the next year or two we may soon be facing a massive food crisis.

According to reports the outbreak has baffled scientists who are scrambling to find the source which some say are water fowl, such as ducks.
