MEXICO CITY, June 25 (Reuters) - Mexico will ban all imports of poultry and poultry products from Arkansas after a small flock in that U.S. state had been exposed to a mild form of bird flu, the agriculture ministry said on Wednesday.

Has anyone heard anything about this? There is almost no news on Google news about it. 15,000 chickens are being culled. You would think a Bird Flu Outbreak in the US would be big news.

Edit: I would also like to apologize for that goofy title by Reuters. I would of changed it, but I dont think I'm allowed to do that.
