EAT THIS, NOT THAT!: Bacon and Hot Dog Prices Are About to Spike, Experts Say
I agree the supply chain is stressed. I call BS on the reason being people are cooking more at home. Restaurants use a tremendous amount of product and sales across the board have been down 30%.

What's more likely is that suppliers curtailed inventories in response to waning restaurant demand and now restaurants are moving to bump up demand because of reopening and there is a squeeze in the supply chain. Real question is are producers willing to step up and risk producing given unknowns that still exist? And how fast can producers ramp up given meat and dairy require raising animals that take time to be brought to market?
