"The goal of the poultry industry is to prevent the disease from occurring in our flocks and to continue to provide safe, wholesome, and nutrient rich products," said Hilary Shallo Thesmar, Ph.D., R.D., and director of the Egg Safety Center in Washington, D.C.

Richard Lobb of the NCC commented that the web site would provide information to the public on such issues as the fact that the U.S. imports no poultry from areas affected by the "bird flu" in Asia and that U.S. poultry are protected from migratory birds and other potential sources of the avian influenza virus. "As Thanksgiving is approaching and nearly every American will have turkey at the center of their plate, this Web site will remind people that we don't import any turkeys into the United States," said Sherrie Rosenblatt of the NTF.

On the site, the Information is provided in article format, Q/A, and in news releases.

The URLwire Effect:
"URLwire is without question the most effective way to tell the right people in the online world about your web site" 
-- CoolShopping.com

My experience with URLWire has been entirely positive.
I received coverage (and links!) from key sites and in e-newsletters, one of which had over 500,000 readers. Resulting traffic has been more than impressive. URLwire
demonstrated to me that it's the prime choice for announcing a web site. Edwin Hayward
