Plan On Two Years Before Egg Prices Return To Normal

June 26, 2015

To date 48 million turkeys and chickens have died or been euthanized due to the H5N2 avian flu virus which began showing up on commercial farms in the Midwest this spring, reports NBC New York. This has driven egg prices upwards. The American Egg Board's senior vice president in charge of food service and egg product marketing told the source, “Best-case scenario, we’re talking a year before the availability is more robust.” While prices have fallen a bit, experts are saying it might be two years before egg production returns to normal.
