Butterball Turkey Shortage — EVERYBODY FREAK OUT
The largest supplier of turkeys is warning of a shortage of larger Turkeys for this Thanksgiving! Why? The birds simply didn’t gain weight!
Butterball released the following statement:
“Butterball and its retail partners have ample supply of frozen whole turkeys of all sizes – small, medium or large. While there may be limited availability on some larger sizes of fresh turkeys, Butterball has shipped 100 percent of customer orders of frozen whole turkeys and products are in distribution across the country. We experienced a decline in weight gains on some of our farms causing a limited availability of large, fresh turkeys. While we are continuing to evaluate all potential causes, we are working to remedy the issue. We sincerely regret the inconvenience that some of our customers have experienced as a result of this issue.”
