Bloomberg report: US may face French fry shortage
There is bad news for French fry lovers -- there may be a potato shortage in the United States.
A new report from Bloomberg
says a bad crop season, along with cold, wet weather, stunted the growth of long potatoes, which is the kind retailers use to make French fries.
Foreign producers are reportedly stepping in to fill the shortage.
Experts say all of this could mean higher potato prices at the grocery store.
