Wendy’s Takes Burgers Off the Menu in Some Locations Due to Meat Shortages

As theshorage of meat in the United States continues to become more apparent as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, popular fast-food chain Wendy's is the latest restaurant to be affected.

Some Wendy's locations have taken hamburgers — the restaurant's signature item — off of their menu, disappointed customers noted on Twitter this week.

The popular hamburger joint, which boasts its "fresh, never frozen" beef, was found serving only chicken and side items at the locations without burgers, one user shared, due to a lack of meat deliveries.

"Some of our menu items may be in short supply from time to time at some restaurants in this current environment,'' Wendy's said in a statement to Restaurant Business. "We expect this to be temporary, and we're working diligently to minimize the impact to our customers and restaurants."

According to Today,customers reported that hamburgers were no longer available at Wendy's locations in California, South Carolina and Kentucky.

The drastic menu change is leaving customers to ask, "Where's the beef?" on social media, referencing the fast-food chain's catchphrase from the 1980s.
