Food Fact: US Egg Consumption Declines

food fact
Egg consumption in the U.S. is on the decline. People are eating around a dozen fewer eggs per person each year than in 2006.

According to Zachary Shahan at Planetsave:

…according to a recent Egg Industry Fact Sheet posted on the United Egg Producers’ website, which is based on statistics from the US Department of Agriculture. As highlighted in the graph below, in 2006 the average American ate 258.1 eggs while the estimate for 2011 drops down to 246.3 β€” that’s nearly one dozen fewer eggs per person.

If you eat eggs, how many do you think you eat each week?
