Wendy's Canada Says Menu Items Might Be Removed From Some Locations Due To Shortages
There could be temporarily limited menus.
Where's the beef? Well, it might not be in some fast-food restaurants. Here's yet another effect of the COVID-19 pandemic. Wendy's Canada burgers and other menu items could be temporarily limited because of shortages.
In a statement to Narcity, Wendy's Canada acknowledged the struggles the food industry is dealing with right now.
That includes beef suppliers across North America that are facing production challenges because of the pandemic.
"We continue to supply hamburgers to all of our restaurants, with deliveries two or three times a week," the fast-food giant said.
That is consistent with the normal delivery schedules.
Even despite best efforts, there could still be changes to what you see on the menu at some locations.
"Some of our menu items may be temporarily limited at some restaurants in this current environment. We're working diligently to minimize the impact to our customers and restaurants," Wendy's Canada said.
The fast-food chain is working with suppliers to closely monitor the situation.
While Wendy's Canada didn't confirm if any of their restaurants have taken items off, two people on Twitter have said that there were no burgers on the menu at locations in Edmonton and Calgary.
This comes after reports that some Wendy's locations in the U.S. have stopped serving beef products because of issues with suppliers.
Burgers were taken off the menu and in some spots, only chicken items and sides are available for purchase.
Other fast-food chains are feeling the effects of COVID-19 too.
