Drought, disease to drive up U.S. meat, seafood pricesRule change: Blood and bumps at Commonwealth Games

Fish and chipsBy Ros Krasny WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Overall U.S. food inflation will remain near the historic norm in 2014, even as prices for meat and seafood are pushed higher by disease and widespread drought, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said on Friday. USDA said wholesale pork prices will jump by 10 percent to 11 percent in 2014, hurt by declining supplies after a virus has killed millions of piglets in the past year. Food inflation, which includes items bought in grocery stores as well as in restaurants, will rise by 2.5 percent to 3.5 percent this year and subside to 2 percent to 3 percent in 2015, the USDA said in its first forecast for the new year. The agency noted a recent jump in vegetable prices but said it was too soon to tie the move to the severe drought in California, the largest U.S. grower of fruits and vegetables.
