(ETH) – A new report from Bloomberg News, on Thursday: titled “Fried-Chicken Craze Is Causing U.S. to Run Low on Poultry.” has raised concerns not just for chicken wings and fried chicken but for a shortage of poultry altogether.

Restaurant franchise, Bojangles just recently posted a recent tweet about their tenders: “we’re experiencing a system-wide shortage 🙁 But they will be back soon!” According to the report, fast-food executives are reporting that they are struggling to stock enough chicken — nuggets, tenders, wings, patties, all shapes, and sizes — to keep pace with the demand.

“Demand for the new sandwich has been so strong that, coupled with general tightening in domestic chicken supply, our main challenge has been keeping up with that demand,” said David Gibbs, CEO of Yum Brands, whose KFC restaurants recently rolled out a new fried-chicken sandwich.

The chairman and CEO of Wingstop, Charles R. Morrison said this week that “Suppliers are struggling, just as many in our industry are, to hire people to process chicken, thus placing unexpected pressure on the number of birds that can be processed and negatively affecting the supply of all parts of the chicken in the U.S., not just wings.”
