A wide variety of chicken products sold in countless stores under numerous brand names is being recalled for a suspected avian flu contamination.
"There have been no reports of infections in humans because of the products," said a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention spokesman in a televised statement. "But the people's pet birds are dropping dead in astonishing numbers.
"It is crucial that if you have any recently purchased chicken products in your home you contact the CDC and arrange for its removal."
Scientists worry that the avian flu will eventually mutate into a new virus that can more easily infect humans.
