The ban list includes Arkansas, California, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North and South Dakota, Oregon, Washington, Wisconsin and Wyoming.

Since December 2014, commercial poultry farms in multiple US states have been hit by avian influenza in what may end up being the largest outbreak of avian flu in US history.

The virus is thought to spread from migratory birds to commercial poultry farms. Once a case of avian influenza is confirmed the poultry stock is quarantined and culled.
