So what would happen if there were an outbreak of avian influenza in a poultry flock in Australia?

Australia is a world leader in biological security and has comprehensive programs and procedures for the detection and eradication of any outbreak.

In the unlikely event of an outbreak, the infected farm would immediately be quarantined and depopulated to control and eradicate any further spread in line with agreed national standards.

No birds from flocks with disease should enter the food chain, as transporting and handling of infected poultry may disseminate virus further.

No poultry products would be allowed to leave the infected farm. Any poultry products that may have left the farm prior to quarantine being imposed would be completely traceable and would be recalled.
