Work continues to ensure dairy products are safe

The Food and Drug Administration continues to test retail dairy products for traces of H5N1 Influenza A (which has been referred to recently as highly pathogenic avian influenza). 

Some of the latest products tested were cottage cheese, sour cream, and fluid milk. The new preliminary results of egg inoculation tests show that pasteurization is effective in inactivating the virus. The additional round of tests did not detect any live, infectious virus in the products.

Jenny Moffit is with the USDA.
