Packages of house brand bacon are seen in a supermarket cooler in New York on Saturday, October 6, 2012. Agricultural economists are calling a shortage of bacon "hogwash" but prices may rise up to 10 percent. Feed costs due to the recent drought caused famers to bring their herds to market earlier resulting in a shortage and higher prices later on.  (© Richard B. Levine)
