No Bacon Shortage, After All

All is right with the world: the much-discussed bacon shortage might not be what everyone’s thought.

FOX News Radio’s Eben Brown reports:

Audio clip:

One could argue it’s the most commonly heard sound every morning in the United States.

(Byasee) “We put bacon on everything around here, that’s what people love.  They love bacon!”

Mike Byasee at Kendrick’s Meats in East Prairie, Missouri.  

But word of a pork shortage in Europe had people here tweeting fears of runs on bacon.  John Anderson at the American Farm Bureau says hogwash…

(Anderson) “Port supplies will decrease slightly as we go into 2013, but the idea that there’ll be widespread shortages, that we’ll run out of pork?  That’s really overblown.”

But pork product prices will likely go up.
