Food and commodity prices may be climbing, but one grocer has announced plans to freeze prices on dozens of items that families buy most. Wegmans Food Markets says it won't increase prices on these products through 2011.

"We considered the importance of an item to a family when choosing our list of 40," said President Colleen Wegman, in a statement. "Such things as bananas, pasta, frozen vegetables and laundry detergent are in most shopping carts every week. They are products that families can't do without, so what they pay for these items really matters."
