State and federal authorities are trying to track down a cache of frozen poultry smuggled into the United States and metro Detroit from areas in China where avian flu is prevalent, state officials said Tues [11 Jul 2006].

They said consumers probably have eaten some of the meat and should be concerned but not alarmed. Proper cooking destroys the deadly virus.
