Eyeview Business Gold Futures Rocked By Velveeta Cheese Shortage Some Call For Rationing

January 8, 2014

Kraft Foods is warning consumers about a Velveeta shortage that could temporarily leave shelves across America bare of their favorite cheese-like products.”It is possible consumers in any part of the country may not be able to find some Velveeta products on store shelves over the next couple of weeks,” Kraft spokeswoman Jody Moore told NBC News. Moore said “higher demand” and “a combination of factors” led to the supply chain issues. If you’re in one of the areas experiencing a Velveeta shortage, you’ll just have to ration your usage for the next few weeks until supplies return to normal. “Oh yeah, I’ve got Velveeta,” said Wayde, a manager at an Associated Food Store in Salt Lake City, Utah, who declined to give his last name.
