Bird Flu Outbreak Is Driving Up Egg Prices — Again

By: CBS – April 24, 2024

“During a bird flu outbreak, farmers report the incident to the USDA and officials from the agency visit the farm to slaughter the entire flock. For the chicken farmer, that means "hundreds of thousands of them that were laying multiple eggs are now not. You're taking out all the baseline egg production for up to three months at a time.

And so we see sustained higher prices or faster inflation in items that are labor intensive, including restaurant meals and packaged foods. So we're going to see higher food prices in some items.
