National Headlines:
CDC: Prepackaged Caramel Apples Could Be Contaminated with Listeria (hyperlink NBC News) The
CDC is warning U.S. consumers not to eat any commercially produced, prepackaged caramel apples
as they may be contaminated with Listeria. Listeria can cause a serious, life-threatening illness. They
say their warning includes plain caramel apples as well as those containing nuts, sprinkles, chocolate,
or other toppings, until more specific guidance can be provided
UPDATE: 11th farm hit with Avian flu, outbreak that started in Chilliwack enters U.S. (hyperlink
Langley Times) The Fraser Valley’s outbreak of avian influenza has now crossed the U.S. border and
at least one American expert isn’t impressed with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency’s (CFIA)
response. Biomedical researcher Henry Niman is concerned the highly pathogenic strain will spread
throughout North America as wild birds begin winter migration. No poultry farms in the U.S. were
impacted by Wednesday, but the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) reported Tuesday that the
H5N2 strain found in Chilliwack, Abbotsford and now Langley has been detected in northern pintail
ducks in Lynden, Wash., fewer than 15 kilometers from the Fraser Valley cluster.

CFIA came up with interactive maps that hide small holdings

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

To ensure compliance with the Privacy Act and provide protection of personal information, the location of an infected zone around a non-commercial farm is not marked on this map. An 1 km infected zone has been established around a non-commercial farm which is located in Aldergrove between Highway 1 and the Fraser River, west of the Langley / Abbotsford boundary.
