The first case of MRSA in poultry in the UK has been found in turkeys and chickens on a farm in East Anglia says the Department of Health (DH).
A spokesman said that two thirds of the turkeys on the farm, which hasn’t been named, were found to be infected.
It is thought that hundreds of turkeys have already been sold to local retail outlets and farm gate sales. The farmer is cooperating.
Experts say the risk to the public is very low.
