U.S. Bird Flu Cases Confirmed

Officials in New Jersey confirm that bird flu has been detected in poultry in their state. The latest incidents of avian flu follow the destruction in Delaware of nearly 100,000 chickens after flocks at two farms were infected. The variant of avian flu detected in the Northeast is different from the one infecting in humans in Southeast Asia. NPR's Brian Naylor reports.
