Egg Prices in the US Nearly Double After Outbreak of Avian Flu

10 16.07.2015 Инфо

Eggs are becoming much more expensive in the US – by the dozen and otherwise.
The US Department of Labor said the outbreak of avian flu caused the cost of eggs to nearly double in June for producers. Wholesale prices for chicken eggs jumped 84.5% in June.
The spike comes amid otherwise tame inflation across the rest of the economy. The producer price index, which measures the costs of goods and services before they reach consumers, rose 0.4% in June.
