Additions to the List of Price Controlled Groceries

In the past, I've mentioned that some groceries, uncluding certain types of breads, eggs, cheeses, butter, and salt, have maximum sale prices set by the government.

This week, the powers that be decided to add 2 more products to the price controlled food list:

White Cheese (Gevinah Levana), 5% fat

and

Heavy Cream (Shamenet Metukah, I think), 38% fat

We are told to expect to see the prices of these two products go down by about 20%.

By the way, these two products were chosen because market studies showed that the profit margin on these two products was astronomical - so consumers were being completely ripped off.
