President Donald Trump plans to impose additional taxes on $7.5 billion worth of goods imported from Europe.

These tariffs, set to start taking effect Oct. 18, are unlike those previously imposed on Chinese goods in that the World Trade Organization authorized them in response to a dispute over subsidies to aircraft manufacturers.

However, a lot more than planes are caught up in the dispute. These tariffs could also affect manufacturers of certain types of food, clothing and home goods.

Worse, experts and industry groups suggest some of the cost may be passed directly on to consumers because producers and exporters have little time to prepare for the tariffs, ABC News reports.

So, if you enjoy any foods, for example, that are imported from nations in the European Union, your trips to restaurants and the grocery store could become more expensive.

Following is a look at products that may soon increase in price.
