Were you recently at the Chelford Market in Cheshire?

If so, then DEFRA (The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs) would like for you to urgently contact them.

The investigation into the source of the H7N2 low pathogenic avian influenza outbreak in North Wales is ongoing.

As part of the tracing exercise, and epidemiological investigation, Defra would like to hear from anyone, who has not already been contacted by Animal Health officials, who has:

  • Purchased from or supplied to Chelford Market in Cheshire on Monday 7 May 2007 or
  • Any poultry keeper who visited Chelford Market on this date whose birds have subsequently become ill.

These people should contact their local Animal Health Office.

See www.defra.gov.uk/animalhealth/about-us/contact-us/animal-health-offices.htm

Or phone the Defra helpline 08459 33 55 77 (open between 9am – 5pm 7 days a week).
