Members of U.S. meat and poultry organizations launched a new website,, to inform consumers on how rising corn prices are driving up meat and poultry costs at the grocery store.


The site, sponsored by the American Meat Institute, National Chicken Council, National Meat Association and National Turkey Federation, urges consumers to sign a petition stating: "Federal energy policies need to move beyond corn-based ethanol and look for the next generation of alternative fuels that don't pit food, feed and fuel needs against each other."
