SHIPPING STATUS UPDATE: JUNE 19, 2021
THE USDA COULD NOT SIGN OFF ON THE HEALTH CERTIFICATES ON JUNE 10TH BECAUSE THE TEST SAMPLES GOT DELAYED IN TRANSIT. WE RECEIVED THIS UNFORTUNATE NEWS SHORTLY AFTER WE HAD ALREADY SENT OUT OUR MASS EMAIL UPDATE REGARDING THIS SHIPMENT. AN EXTREMELY FRUSTRATING SITUATION, TO SAY THE LEAST.
OUR LOCAL LAB PROCESSED THE AI TEST RESULTS QUICKLY, AND WE HAD THOSE RESULTS IN TIME, HOWEVER, THE NEWCASTLE SAMPLES HAD TO BE SENT TO CALIFORNIA TO AN APPROVED USDA TESTING LAB FACILITY. THAT IS WHERE THE WHOLE DELAY HAPPENED WHICH PREVENTED THIS SHIPMENT FROM TAKING PLACE.
THE BIRDS HAD TO BE RETESTED THIS PAST WEEK, AND WE CANNOT SHIP THE BIRDS ON JUNE 21ST AS WAS ORIGINALLY PLANNED, DUE TO SOME CONCERNS WITH THE TESTING RESULTS.
OUR VET FEELS THEY MAY BE FALSE POSITIVES FOR PMV/NEWCASTLE.
THE USDA IS GOING TO LOOK FURTHER INTO THIS ON MONDAY, JUNE 21ST.
WE WON'T KNOW MORE UNTIL WE RETURN FROM VACATION ON JUNE 27TH.
