"Prices for eggs climbed more than 10% from September to October, according to the latest Consumer Price Index data. Prices in October were 43% higher than the same month a year ago. Eggs had the biggest jump by far on a monthly and yearly basis in any category in the US Department of Agriculture's food price outlook," Bloomberg reported.

Consumers paid an average of $3.42 for a dozen Grade A, large eggs last month -- up from $1.82 a year earlier.
