Bring Home More Bacon If You Plan To Buy More Bacon

Posted: Updated:

Pork prices are skyrocketing because of a  mysterious virus that has swept thru 27 states.

Producers are blaming that virus from China never before seen in the U.S. It has killed millions of piglets in less than one year, mainly in midwestern states, but elsewhere as well.

Bacon is  far from alone with this pork price increase. It includes popular cuts like center pork loin. One butcher"normally they'd average about $8. Now they're about $12. The loin and the baby back ribs.  

So far there have been no reports of any humans or other animals being infected with the virus from china.
