Vancouver, Canada — A package of bacon in British Columbia. A British farming organisation is predicting a worldwide shortage of bacon and pork in 2013. The National Pig Association says global drought conditions are driving up the price of grain, a major staple in hog feed. It says retail prices are not rising fast enough to cover the cost of record-high pig-feed costs. (Photo:AP)
