Wendy’s Takes Burgers Off the Menu Due to Meat Shortage Amid Coronavirus

Wendy’s Takes Burgers Off the Menu Due to Meat Shortage Amid Coronavirus
By Emily Bicks
May 5, 2020


Numerous Wendy’s restaurant locations across the nation have removed burgers from their menus due to the meat shortage amid coronavirus. In an unfortunate twist of fate, disappointed customers wanting to order take-out or hit the drive-thru can’t help but reference chain’s famous slogan from the ’80s and ask, “Where’s the beef?”

In response, Wendy’s put out the following statement: “As you’ve likely heard, beef suppliers across North America are currently facing production challenges. Because of this, some of our menu items may be in short supply from time to time at some restaurants in this current environment. We expect this to be temporary, and we’re working diligently to minimize the impact to our customers and restaurants.”

Why not just close the stores? Their Asiago Chicken Club is good, but it ain't gonna have people going through the drive thru.

There is no meat shortage, there is a shortage of cheap labor to process it.

Yep, I’m totally fearmongering, aren’t I? The cure is going to be worse than the disease. Maybe not for us, but worldwide, yep.

This was all a ploy to get us to accept the impossible burger on our baconators, our royale with cheeses and our whoppers.

Great now people are going to be hoarding ground beef.

I'm hoarding smoked boudin and cracklins.

....Which still means a meat shortage. It’s not like Thanos snapped his fingers and half the cows evaporated.

Mcdonalds reduced their menu. I haven't eaten there but for 2 times all year, but when I went by a few weeks ago all I could order were nuggets, fries, mcdoubles, mcchickens. They had a few other menu options but it was cut by half from what I saw. Oh well, I've been cooking a lot more... and eating a lot more peanut butter sandwiches when the gf isn't home to cook either

Actually got a tip from a McDonald's manager on Friday that beef and pork would be hard to come by starting this week. Went out and got 15 lbs of ground meat, 20 pounds of Boston Butt roasts, 15 pounds of chuck roast, and about 20 pounds of steaks. We eating good the next few weeks.

this is strange. I thought there was an E.O. protecting U.S. meat supplies?

If America can’t get its Big Macs, what does that mean to someone living in an overcrowded city in Bangladesh? That’s not good.

The whole situation is weird.

The packing lines are set up mainly for restaurant packs like the ones Wendy’s and McD would be is using, but there have been statements that they don’t have enough demand for what they are producing.

Yet fast food restaurants and takeaway restaurants are still up and going, so there should be a decent demand for beef and pork even if not at normal levels.

Yeah, I am certain that processed shite is really good for us... Not that Wendy's is very healthy either...

So, what now? Kill all the cows to help with global warming?

Bangladesh is likely eating rice or chicken.

They aren’t eating pork there due to the Muslim population and I doubt they are eating beef because of the Hindu population either there or just over the border in India.

This is why the U.N. of all organizations warned about the cure being worse than the disease 2-3 weeks ago. They predicted a global famine from these shutdowns that could potentially kill tens of millions of people. For first world nations like us, it'll be nothing more than a nosebleed. But for the nations in Africa that rely on the first world for charity? Yeah...many of them are going to die.
