Food Inflation Kept Hidden in Tinier Bags


"
Ms. Stauber, 33, said she began inspecting her other purchases, aisle by aisle. Many canned vegetables dropped to 13 or 14 ounces from 16; boxes of baby wipes went to 72 from 80; and sugar was stacked in 4-pound, not 5-pound, bags, she said.
Five or so years ago, Ms. Stauber bought 16-ounce cans of corn. Then they were 15.5 ounces, then 14.5 ounces, and the size is still dropping. The first time Ive ever seen an 11-ounce can of corn at the store was about three weeks ago, and I was just floored, she said. Its sneaky, because they figure people wont know.

Get used to it... Food prices are going to continue to go up even with the smaller packaging.

i know, i bought 1 ribeye steak this weekend and it cost me 5.33/lb

looks like i will be hunting this year- turkeys, ducks, geese and deer

I'm also searching out a local farmer for chicken and eggs.

This is only going to make unemployment effects worse, and people to rely ob uncle sugar for more help

Having some time to kill the other day at a store I noticed a lot of the so called health bars/energy bars. I was looking for something to snack on and I picked some of them up to read the label. The packaging in my opinion is designed to look like you are getting something of larger volume. But inside the package is something fairly small.
