TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — Taiwan McDonald’s said on Tuesday (May 17) that the company is running out of French fry reserves and that the supply will return to normal on Friday (May 20) at the earliest.

There have been reports of some McDonald’s stores putting out “no French fries” notices saying the product was temporarily out of stock due to the unstable state of the global shipping industry, ETtoday reported.

In response, Taiwan McDonald’s confirmed that its 402 stores across the country will stop providing the product after they run out of stock. The company said the stores will run out of stock at different times and that it has not been able to figure out how many are being affected at the moment.

The company expects supply to return to normal on Friday at the earliest, per ETtoday.

Meanwhile, the fast-food chain will continue to provide sweet potato fries, four or six chicken nuggets, and chicken legs as sides, according to the report.
