California's Egg Regulations: Implications for Producers and Consumers
Colin A. Carter and Tina L. Saitone
California's egg regulations became effective January 1, 2015. Immediately, egg prices in California were nearly
double those in the rest of the U.S. as producers worked through an adjustment to new regulations. The price premium for eggs in California has narrowed but is likely to remain well above prices in the rest of the U.S. due to the continued regulatory uncertainty and higher costs associated with complying with the regulations.
