According to the LA Times, Kraft Foods has confirmed that there is actually a Velveeta shortage.
Posting a statement to its Tumblr, Kraft said that there is currently limited availability of some Velveeta products.
Here is the full statement:
While the current Cheesepocalypse is a difficult time for our great nation, we are incredibly humbled and appreciative of the outpouring of love and support for the Liquid Gold of Velveeta. As you have likely seen or heard by now on social networks and major media outlets, there is currently limited availability of some Velveeta products in many stores nationwide. We want you to hear directly from us that it’s true–we are experiencing a temporary scarcity of our nation’s most precious commodity: Liquid Gold. But please know that we are working tirelessly to get more Velveeta on store shelves as soon as possible and that this was in no way a “publicity stunt.” We always want Velveeta where it belongs–in your hands, in your homes and in your stomachs.
Stick with us in the coming weeks, because we want to make it up to you–and we will.
On behalf of our entire team, thank you for your support, for your understanding and–most importantly–for your love of Velveeta.
We love you.
