It said the farm had been hit by the highly pathogenic avian influenza type A, reported Reuters.

Severe forms of avian influenza have spread in Europe and Asia in recent weeks. In France, eight outbreaks have now occurred on farms, with the previous seven cases in the north, according to the ministry.

Bird flu is often fatal for poultry. It cannot be transmitted through food although some human cases have raised concern among epidemiologists.
