Taiwan’s McDonald’s Stores Stop Hash Brown Sales | Taiwan News
TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – Many McDonald’s stores in Taiwan announced Friday, January 7, that they will suspend the sale of hash browns due to instability in the global supply chain.
The sign displayed at various branches in Taiwan and on the official McDonald’s Taiwan website on Friday reads:
“Due to the recent instability in the global shipping supply, McDonald’s has a shortage of hash browns and will temporarily stop selling them once the remaining supplies run out. (Shipments) are currently actively being shipped, and It is estimated that stocks will be replenished by the end of January, when normal supplies will resume. We thank customers for their support and apologize for the convenience we have caused. “
McDonald’s Taiwan has said that hash browns will vary from store to store, and an announcement will be posted as soon as they run out. However, supplies of its most famous potato product, French fries, are still plentiful.
Taiwanese netizens responded with comments such as: “McDonald’s breakfast without hash browns is not breakfast!” A similar suspension of fried donuts took place in mid-August last year, sparking similar complaints from internet users such as, “I can’t live without hash browns!”
