Cheesy shortage: Kraft says Velveeta running low

Created: 01/07/2014 3:44 PM WHEC.com

Kraft Foods says some customers may not be able to find Velveeta products over the next few weeks but didn't give any reasons for the apparent shortage.

A spokeswoman for the company, Jody Moore, says only that such shortages happen from time to time. She noted that the lack of availability is more noticeable because of the seasonal demand.

Moore says Kraft hasn't heard from any customers that they're having problem finding the products. She says the company expects the shortage to be a short-term situation.

The trade publication Ad Age reported the shortage Tuesday, saying a few East Coast grocery stores were seeing shortages.
