Egg Prices Continue Climb for Consumers

Back in June I warned of egg price spikes due to the birdĀ flu hitting chickens. Another financial study has come out and the prices still continue to go up. Here is more from the South Bend Tribune:

Eggs were the biggest contributor to the increase in cost. An outbreak of avian flu this summer led to a loss of 48 million birds nationwide, according to the Indiana State Board of Animal Health. With flocks decimated, the price for a dozen large eggs skyrocketed from $1.86 last fall to $3.08 per dozen in September, according to the bureau survey.
