Yikes! Bacon May Disappear in California


The west coast is definitely not the best coast after this.

A new animal welfare law taking effect in California at the beginning of next year could make bacon harder to find and more expensive. California will begin enforcing an animal welfare law that requires more space for breeding pigs, egg-laying chickens and veal calves.

California’s restaurants and groceries use about 255 million pounds of pork a month, but it’s farms produce only 45 million pounds. According to a study, if the pork supply was suddenly lost in California, bacon prices would jump 60%, meaning a $6 package would rise to about $9.60.

I wouldn't be surprised if people take advantage and open pop up bacon shops on the street and start selling overpriced bacon - haha!
