McDonald’s supply shortages could lead to unavailability of fan favorites

McDonald’s customers could miss their favorite items as the fast-food chain warns of supply issues.

Signs have appeared at some chains warning of ingredient shortages that could leave your favorite item off the menu.

The warning was spotted in the Kinds Road restaurant in Chelsea, west London, and was also seen in Cambridgeshire and Edinburgh.

It reads: “Due to supply chain issues, some items may be served with some ingredients missing and others may be temporarily unavailable.

“We apologize in advance to all affected customers and thank you for your patience.”

McDonald’s confirmed it was experiencing UK-wide supply issues, but did not say which items may be affected or unavailable due to the shortage.

They added that no plans were yet in place to remove items from the menu.

The statement from McDonald’s said: “Like most retailers, we are currently experiencing pressures in our supply chain which, at times, may impact a small number of our menu items at certain restaurants.

“We apologize for any inconvenience and thank our customers for their patience.

“We are working hard to resolve issues as quickly as possible.”

The latest warning comes after McDonald’s ran out of tomatoes in March.

The lack of tomatoes saw new menu items, the Big Tasty and the Big Tasty with Bacon, served with a single slice of tomato instead of the normal two.

A McDonald’s spokesperson said: ‘We are currently experiencing a shortage in our tomato supply.

Adding that they “apologize for any inconvenience and thank our customers for their patience. We are working hard to resolve this issue as quickly as possible.”
