America is facing a major egg crisis due to bird flu, experts have warned.
They say 25 per cent of the country’s egg production is already offline due to the virus, with more producers expecting to be hit.
To replace eggs, manufacturers are increasingly turning a hi-tech San Francisco firm that makes an ‘eggless egg’ using a secret blend of plants.

More than 44 million chickens, turkeys and other birds have been culled since last December.

The American Bakers Association (ABA) is among those urging bakers and other food makers to look at alternatives.

‘Due to the avian influenza, egg supplies are decreasing at an alarming rate,’ said Robb MacKie, ABA President & CEO.

‘Recent data shows that approximately 25 percent of industrial egg product production, including liquid, frozen, and powdered eggs, is now offline due to the avian influenza.

‘This represents a major blow to egg product ingredients bakers rely upon, and without quickly accessing additional supplies, bakers will face a dire situation.’
