The nations favourite chicken chain, KFC has warned that there could be possible shortages across the UK due to disruption.

KFC warned their customers via a tweet that there could be another potential shortage of some items and their packaging “might look different.”

There is a shortage of 100,000 HGV drivers according to the Road Haulage Association (RHA) which has caused food disruption to supermarkets and other outlets.

KFC has seen a shortage in cup lids, some packaging and other items, which could be due to the shortage of drives across the UK, although they have not as yet specified this.

A KFC spokesperson said, “As with so many other businesses across the country, recent disruption has meant some of our restaurants are facing a few shortages.

“Despite that, we’re still open and serving our iconic fried chicken – all thanks to our incredible team members. They’re doing a brilliant job keeping the fryers going, so please be kind to them.

“Our restaurants serve fresh, natural, quality chicken. If the recent disruption means that’s not delivered, some of our restaurants may need to make temporary changes to their menu.

“The eagle-eyed among you may also notice some of our packaging could look a little different too, but crucially, it’ll still be full of incredible chicken.”

KFC said in a statement on Twitter, “The Colonel has just emerged from a long day at the fryers and wanted to share the following message.

“Just a heads up that across our country, there’s been some disruption over the last few weeks, so things may be a little different when you next visit us.

“You might find some items aren’t available or our packaging might look a little different to normal.

“We know it’s not ideal, but we’re working hard to keep things running smoothly.

“In the meantime, please be patient with our incredible teams… they’re doing a brilliant job despite the disruption.

“We can’t wait to see you soon for your next fried chicken fix.

“Thanks for understanding.”
