This is just CRAZY! I heard about In-N-Out closing stores in Texas for 1-2 days earlier this week because of the quality issues with their buns. I went to Raising Cane's for dinner last night and was surprised to see this sign up in the drive-thru. Yep, NO TEXAS TOAST because of "quality issues" too. Now Whataburger is doing the same. What the heck is going on?!
Whataburger released the following statement:
We voluntarily removed white buns and Texas Toast from some of our restaurants in the DFW area, East and West Texas, Oklahoma and Northwest Arkansas because of a quality issue with one of our suppliers. There’s no health risk at all, rather an impact on our bun’s flavor caused by an unbalance in the yeast, and we want to make sure our customers get the best product.We understand this is frustrating to our loyal customers and apologize to those impacted by the shortage. We’re happy to make any burger or sandwich using a wheat bun, flour tortilla or bun-less on a platter at no extra charge. Customers visiting a restaurant experiencing a shortage of buns can enjoy extended breakfast hours until 1pm today.
