The food-at-home CPI for the second quarter of 2014 was 2.3 percent higher than the food-at-home CPI for second quarter 2013, as most at-home food categories increased in price, some over 10 percent.

Year-over-year increases in retail beef and veal, pork, and egg prices were the largest since the fourth quarter of 2011.
