Federal Legislators Call on Egg Producers to Explain Price Increases

Senator Elizabeth Warren and Representative Katie Porter are calling on five egg-producing companies to provide answers about increased egg prices and the extent to which egg producers “may be using fears about avian flu and supply shocks as a cover to pad their own profits.” The legislators are asking the following companies to provide transparency about the price increases and the resultant financial impacts on the companies: Rose Acre Farms, Cal-Maine Foods, Hillandale Farms, Versova Management, and Daybreak Foods.
