 It is not the first time McDonald’s has had shortages and supply chain issues.

In June, customers were disappointed when there was a UK shortage of chicken selects. 

The supply chain crisis has caused chaos, with shortages on supermarket shelves across the UK as well as delayed deliveries and increased prices.

Alongside McDonalds, other companies such as Nandos, Ikea and BP have reported supply chain issues.

It is partially caused by demand increasing in the UK economy recovering more quickly than supply.

Staff shortages are also a cause of supply chain problems and Brexit, Covid and wider economic conditions are contributing factors. 

Across the UK food supply chain there are currently about half a million staff shortages, which represents 12.5 per cent of the total workforce required. 

The haulage sector has also been badly affected by the crisis, with the government pledging to recruit thousands more lorry drivers for the Christmas period.

A shortage of drivers previously delayed fuel deliveries, which sparked panic buying.

This caused petrol shortages across the UK as people panic bought the fuel.

They have removed it from the menu in the short term while they work to resolve the problem. 

A spokesman for McDonald’s said: ‘Like most retailers, we are currently experiencing some supply chain issues.

The product is still available to purchase in restaurants. We apologise for any inconvenience, and thank our customers for their continued patience.
