Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI) H5

The Michigan Departments of Natural Resources (DNR) and Agriculture and Rural Development (MDARD) announced confirmed cases of highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) H5N2 have been detected in the state. Avian influenza is a virus that can infect both free-ranging and domestic poultry such as chickens, turkeys, quail and geese. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention considers the risk to people from these HPAI viruses to be low. To date, no human HPAI infections have been detected in the United States. Avian influenza is not a food safety concern and no birds or bird products infected with HPAI will enter the food chain. For updates visit www.michigan.gov/avianinfluenza.
