Recent egg fire will probably not impact prices, according to Eggs Unlimited

A recent fire at a large commercial egg-laying facility will likely have no impact on prices here in the U.S.

Around 100,000 egg-laying hens were killed last weekend when a fire broke out, but strategists with Eggs Unlimited say the loss likely will not have an impact on egg prices. While it does not help the overall supply, they say fires in facilities like this happen a few times a year.

Right now, wholesale egg prices are down around $3 per dozen from their peak, with less demand and higher shelf prices.
