Family Mart has reportedly limited the stock of its fried chicken, Famichiki, one of its bestselling items.

Customers at several branches started seeing the suspension of Famichiki and voiced their concern over Twitter. The convenience store chain blames the shortage on the spike of confirmed COVID-19 cases in Thailand, where two-thirds of the product is imported from. This has left the meat processing plant short-staffed, hindering the process of production and transportation.

This shortage is set to last until around mid-December.
