Bird flu worries being felt

Chicago Tribune Feb. 27--The deadly bird flu virus is on the move, showing up in the European Union for the first time amid rising concern about an eventual outbreak in the United States.
Traders were on alert as the news poured in, said analyst Greg Grow of Archer Financial Services.
"This bird flu thing has been a dark cloud hovering over the commodity markets for four months now," he said. "Certainly it's going to continue to be out there."
