That’s not exactly true, the shortage is because of all the meat plant workers getting the Chinese red death virus, you know, the one that came from China, the wuhan flu, fung fu flu.... from China!

^^Exactly. Stores are full. But pull up the CNN site and one of the banner headlines is about 'food shortages and soaring prices'...all just a bunch of fear-mongering and scare tactics from cowards in the media.
