Egg prices prompted Dollar Tree to pull boxes from shelves: reports

The high cost of eggs has led Dollar Tree to remove the food from store shelves.

Dollar Tree has stopped selling eggs, the retail and grocery chain confirmed to multiple media outlets this week – pointing to continued high egg prices.

In recent months, the price of eggs has skyrocketed to record highs. Costs to consumers are starting to come down, with a 6.7% fall in February, but egg prices are still up 55% over the past year. As of February, according to CNN, producers saw an annual increase in egg costs of 38%.

Shoppers saw an average price of $4.21 per carton for Grade A eggs in February, down from $4.82 in January, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Grade A eggs, on the other hand, cost about $2 per box in February 2022.
