ASBURY, Mo. — Turkeys found to be infected with the bird flu at two Missouri turkey farms will be killed.

The Missouri Department of Agriculture has quarantined the two commercial turkey farms in the state. One farm is in Asbury, Mo., in the southwest part of the state. The other is in Fortuna in Mid-Missouri.

Tests on the bird revealed they were positive for the strain of the flu.

Bird flu was also found in four other states.

Officials say the turkeys will not enter the food supply.
