Turkey Prices Rising

CBS MoneyWatch reports that the price of turkey has increased.

CBS has reported that the price of turkey has risen more than 30 percent in the last year. The article references a survey that states that the price of cooking a traditional Thanksgiving will be eight percent higher than it was in 2009. MoneyWatch also pointed out the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has predicted that beef and dairy could face up to a five percent price hike in 2011. The article points to factors such as poor weather and emerging foreign markets as contributors to the price increases, and finally suggests that readers go vegetarian or vegan to combat the rising price of food.
