NOOOOOOOO! Unavoidable Bacon Shortage Predicted for 2013

A group in the UK is warning the rest of the swine-feasting world that a BACON SHORTAGE is predicted for 2013.  According to the group, the shortages have already hit Britain, and is expected to become a global problem.

Britain’s National Pig Association said in a press release that new data shows that the European Union pig herd is declining at a significant rate, a trend mirrored around the world.

In a statement, the group warns that pig farmers are losing money because of high pig-feed costs caused by global failure of maize and soya harvests.

CBS News says that even considering those factors, the USDA forecasted next year’s pork production at 23 billion pounds, a decrease of about 1.3 percent from this year’s estimated total. That breaks down to Americans consuming slightly more than 45 pounds of pork per capita in 2013, a reduction of more than 1 percent from this year’s estimates.

So if you’re a fan of bacon–you may want to stock up while you can.
