The last time we looked at the rather unpalatable issue of soaring bacon prices back in March, it was the direct result of exploding, no pun intended, prices of lean hogs stricken by the aptly named porcine epidemic diarrhea (PED) virus, which killed up to 7 million pigs and pushed the price of pork and its derivatives to record highs. We have bad news: according to Reuters an Indiana farm has become the first to confirm publicly it suffered a second outbreak of a deadly pig virus, fueling concerns that a disease that has wiped out 10 percent of the U.S. hog population will be harder to contain than producers and veterinarians expected. That's right, the PEDv, aka pig diarrhea bug, is back, and this time it may have mutated.

Went into town today to pick a few things up but couldn't find any bacon for under $5.00.  That's too bad because a pesky husky grabbed the last pack out of the fridge while I had my back turned. I guess I'll have to go and see what I have in the freezer as I won't be buying  much at those prices.
It may never happen. Best to be prepared just in case.
