    This is bs as one of the first process in shuttle production is to bleach the raw feathers. Bleach is very effective in killing bacteria and viruses.

    Most of the shuttlecock brands have announced price increase on next batch and shipment delayed for ordered items.
    Probably is good to stock up some before the price is crazy....

    From that link, it says "Jiangsu and Zhejiang and Anhui area happens to be the H7N9-infected areas". Does anyone know which shuttlecock brands will be affected?
