Californians may be forced to give up bacon - due to the state's new animal welfare laws.
- The new laws - which go into effect next year - require pork producers to provide more space for breeding pigs. But producers say retrofitting their facilities to meet the new standards would be too expensive.
- That means California could lose nearly all of its pork supply - which could lead to higher prices and a loss of sales for restaurants.
- CA restaurants and grocery stores go through more than 255 million pounds of pork each month - most of which is imported from other states like Iowa.
- Would you be able to go without bacon? What food would be the hardest to give up?
