Health workers are putting 11 states on high alert for an Asian delicacy that may have been smuggled into the country illegally.

The government banned any importation of poultry from Asia last year because of the Bird Flu.

Now, they say 68 stores in 11 states, including Colorado, may be selling infected chicken feet.

According to the Department of Agriculture, a Connecticut-based importer may have sold the chicken feet to Asian restaurants and markets in 11 states.

The bird flu has killed people in Vietnam, Thailand, and Cambodia.
