with violating avian flu quarantine
H os tetter, in business as Harry
Hostetter Egg Hauling, Atglen,
Pa., has been charged with
violating a federal avian influenza
quarantine in southeastern Penn
sylvania, a U.S. Department of
Agriculture veterinarian reports.
Dr. Gerald Fichtner, director of
the state-federal-industry avian
influenza task force headquartered
at Lancaster, said Hostetter
moved eggs on Jan. 4,11,16 and 20,
1984, interstate from a quarantined
area Oxford, Pa., to Elizabeth,
N. J. without obtaining a permit.
In addition, Hostetter moved the
eggs on each occasion without
having them cleaned and
sanitized. Emergency regulations
restrict the movement of eggs and
poultry from quarantined areas to
prevent the spread of avian flu.
Hostetter has 20 days to respond
to the charge and may request a
hearing before an administrative
law judge. USDA officials are
asking for a civil penalty of $4,000
if Hostetter is found in violation.

avian influenza requires everyone

form. Mapping of the genetic
amino acid sequences in the two
viruses, which contain in the
neighborhood of 1,700 amino acids
each, indicates the two viruses
differ only a few sequences, which
apparently can result through
normal mutational changes.
Webster also said that although
there has been no evidence to date
that the low pathogenic form of the
virus exists in wild waterfowl, they
have found component parts of the
virus. He postulated that the low
pathogenic virus indeed may have
originated from such waterfowl
since viruses in the wild are
constantly mixing (mutating).
