    The CDC’s official word is, “Avian influenza is not transmitted through cooked food.”

    They have a pretty substantial FAQ page on the flu at http://www.who.int/csr/disease/avian_influenza/avian_faqs/en/index.html#poultry which I really recommend anyone worrying about this to read. I think it will clear up a lot of misconceptions (though honestly it also could freak you out even more).

    Bottom line for me, no, this won’t change my turkey plans, and would only change them if in the next two weeks the virus mutates into a highly infectious form that easily spreads human-to-human.

    That’s when I’ll freak. Yikes.
