Joe Biden Claims Shelves Are Well Stocked as Grocers Ration Food
President Joe Biden tweeted Wednesday that supermarket shelves are well stocked across the country while grocers ration food.
“For all those concerns a few weeks ago that there would not be ample food available for Thanksgiving, families can rest easy today,” Biden claimed.
“Grocery stores are well-stocked with turkey and everything else you need,” the president added.
Meanwhile, Publix Supermarkets, a Florida-based grocer, warned customers this week to expect food 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
Canned pie filling
Canola and vegetable oil
Rolled breakfast sausage
Disposable plates, cups and cutlery
Refrigerated snacks (Lunchables-type items)
Aseptic-type juices (Capri Sun)
Canned cat food (variety packs)
Refrigerated pet food
Breitbart News visited Central Florida locations to confirm the rationed items.
NBC’s South Florida affiliate reported the empty shelves are not set to be restocked anytime soon, nor are the food shortages just confined to holiday foods.
“The limits 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 limits, and the list can change to include more items or remove items.”
