In what seems like a rather ominous sign of the times, several Wendy’s locations across the country – including here in California — are experiencing a meat shortage due to COVID-19, especially in the beef department. The solution? Removing burgers from the menu.
Lots of slaughterhouses and meat-packing plants are starting to shutter, either because of lay-offs or because the government’s shutting them down out of precaution in an attempt to curb spreading even more disease. We know that game all too well lately.
So until the food chain gets back up to speed, it’s chicken sandwiches, chicken nuggets, salads, and turkey chili for us.
That is, until the chicken and turkey options dry up as well. Then… I guess we’ll be vegetarians! And then… post-apocalyptic scavengers! YAY! Good times ahead!
