Border officials warn travelers to stop egg smuggling attempts

Customs and Border Protection officials are seeing an increase in people
trying to smuggle eggs across the U.S.-Mexico border.
Trying to bring uncooked eggs from Mexico into the U.S. without telling
a CBP officer is illegal. It could lead to a fine of up to $10,000.
The trend comes as egg prices skyrocket in American grocery stores.
At this time in 2022, a dozen eggs were less than $2 on average in the
U.S. A grocery store in San Ysidro, California, was selling a dozen eggs
for $7.99.

Food distributors blame the drastic spike in prices on the bird flu
outbreak and supply chain issues.
