April 26, 2015 - The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has confirmed that a third poultry premise in Oxford County, Ont. has tested tested positive for H5N2 Avian influenza.
This premise is in close proximity to the second premise identified with avian influenza (a broiler breeder farm) and is within the second control zone established by the CFIA last week.

The infected premise is a turkey flock of 8,000 birds.  The CFIA is hoping that this development will not impact the existing parameters of zone 2 or trade but those points are yet to be confirmed.
