One of America’s favorite breakfast meats may be unavailable in 2013.

The National Pig Association issued a public statement saying “a world shortage of pork and bacon next year is now unavoidable."

The British trade group reported that the drought conditions have limited the corn and soybean crop causing a decline in pig herds across Europe. The NPA believes the shortage will eventually spread worldwide.

However, U.S. pork enthusiasts suggest that Americans have nothing to worry about. In August, the U.S. Department of Agriculture reported that pork has been stored in record levels in warehouses across the country.

Nevertheless, farmers are scaling back in tending to large herds of pigs since the dry summer caused a spike in the cost of feeding pigs.
