USA: Egg prices are rising again

24 March, 2024

According to Nerdwallet, egg prices are once again on the upswing due to outbreaks of avian influenza. HPAI A(H5) viruses have been detected in U.S. wild aquatic birds, commercial poultry, and backyard or hobbyist flocks since January 2022, affecting more than 82 million birds across 48 states to date.
Nerdwallet cited the latest Consumer Price Index, which revealed a 5.8% increase in egg prices from January to February alone. Data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) additionally indicates that the average cost of a dozen Grade A eggs rose from $2.52 in January to $3 in February.
