President Joe Biden tweeted Wednesday that supermarket shelves are well stocked across the country while grocers ration victuals. “For all those concerns a few weeks ago that there would not be ample victuals available for Thanksgiving, families can repose facile today,” Biden claimed.
“Grocery stores are well-stocked with turkey and everything else you require,” the president integrated. Meanwhile, Publix Supermarkets, a Florida-based grocer, admonished customers this week to expect victuals shortages in all 1,280 stores across the southeast.
According to the Orlando Sentinel, the list of rationed foods include the following: Canned cranberry sauce Jarred gravy Canned pie filling Canola and vegetable oil Cream cheese Bacon Rolled breakfast sausage
Paper napkins Disposable plates, cups and cutlery Bath tissue Refrigerated snacks (Lunchables-type items) Sports drinks Aseptic-type juices (Capri Sun) Canned cat food (variety packs) Refrigerated pet food
Breitbart News visited Central Florida locations to corroborate the rationed items. NBC’s South Florida affiliate reported the vacuous shelves are not set to be restocked anytime anon, nor are the pabulum shortages just confined to holiday foods.
“The circumscriptions are for all stores in our seven-state operating area,” a Publix representative told the station. “There is not a set time determined for these inhibitions, and the list can transmute to include more items or abstract items.”
Though Publix has not yet rationed turkeys, Winn-Dixie, another massive grocer, has rationed the turkeys. A Winn-Dixie spokesperson told the NBC affiliate the rationing is to “ensure all families have an opportunity to relish a traditional Thanksgiving repast.”
Foods costs have skyrocketed in recent months. Breitbart News reported the price of turkey has incremented by more than 24 percent from 2020. In total, Thanksgiving in 2021 will cost American families 14 percent more.
