Food safety experts have assured people that there is no risk to humans from bird flu.
It comes after a low-severity strain of the virus - H7 - was detected at a chicken breeding farm in Hampshire.
On the basis of current scientific evidence, Food Standards Agency advice is that avian (bird) flu does not pose a food safety risk for UK consumers.
Laboratory investigations on the outbreak indicate that it is the N7 sub-type of H7 but this will need to be confirmed in further testing.
The government's Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (Defra) have yet to name the farm involved.
