McDonald’s has run out of milkshake in all UK restaurants!

Fast food chain, McDonald’s, has been forced to pull milkshakes and bottled drinks from its menu due to supply chain issues, it said in a statement on Monday night.

McDonald’s, which operates in some 1,300 restaurants across the UK, has become the latest victim of supply chain disruptions that are currently roiling England, Scotland, and Wales.

In a statement, McDonald's said that bottled drinks and milkshakes would temporarily be unavailable at all its stores across the country.

"Like most retailers, we are currently experiencing some supply chain issues, impacting the availability of a small number of products," the company said.

"Bottled drinks and milkshakes are temporarily unavailable in restaurants across England, Scotland and Wales."

"We apologise for any inconvenience and thank our customers for their continued patience. We are working hard to return these items to the menu as soon as possible."

 

 

Are other retailers affected?

McDonald's is not the first restaurant chain to be hit by shortages - last week, Nando's was forced to temporarily close around 50 restaurants after suffering supply issues with its chicken.

The group, which operates some 400 sites around the country, also said it would lend some of its staff to its suppliers to help "get things moving" again after its business was rocked by supply chain issues.

This summer, the UK has been hit by a shortage of lorry drivers, a crisis that has affected supermarkets, restaurants, and other retailers.

There is currently estimated to be a shortfall of around 90,000 drivers.

Fast food giant KFC said it was also having similar issues, warning that some items would not be available and packaging "may look a bit different to normal".

Richard Griffiths, chief executive of the British Poultry Council, blamed worker shortages following Brexit for the issues the industry is currently facing.
