A Facebook post has quickly gone viral showing eggs being sold for $2 a carton at a Walmart in Kentucky causing a large online response from people discussing the recent spike in egg prices across the country.
WLEX, a local NBC-affiliated television station in Lexington, shared a photo of the egg display on its official Facebook page. The station identified the display as being at a Walmart in Harrodsburg in central Kentucky.
Newsweek spoke with an employee at the Harrodsburg store who confirmed the location had 18-egg cartons available for $2 reduced from over $6. A spokesperson from Walmart also provided Newsweek with a statement about the eggs at the store.
"We're committed to providing the best prices so our customers can save money and live better," the statement read. "What happened involving the shipment of eggs to the Harrodsburg store demonstrates our ability to take advantage of these unique opportunities and quickly pass on those savings."
