    Egg cartel artificially bumping up prices.

    Egg industry faces legal crackdown over alleged 'cartel' attempt.

    Consumer watchdog claims egg lobby group conspired to inflate prices by slaughtering chickens and dumping eggs.

    The egg industry faces court action after an alleged attempt to keep prices artificially high by slaughtering egg-laying chickens and burying eggs.

    Ok, this has happened in Australia, but I wonder if our own egg-producing groups are doing it too ?

    Am I just paranoid here and am I worrying about nothing ?
