Wendy’s restaurant has taken burgers off the menu in some locations and grocery stores Costco and Kroger have announced limited stocks of beef as Americans start to feel the impact of the pandemic-triggered meat shortage.

On Monday angry customers realized the Wendy’s hallmark item was no longer available for order and only chicken items were available for takeout and delivery at select locations across the country.

‘Where’s the beef?’ some outraged social media users asked, invoking Wendy’s catchphrase from 1980s.

It’s a shocking decision for Wendy’s, which established itself as the first fast-food chain to offer fresh ‘never frozen’ beef, and it’s an eerie foreshadowing for what’s to come at restaurants across the country.

Outbreaks of the virus at meat packing plants across the country have led slaughterhouses to shutter, farms to kill off animals they can no longer feed, store shelves to empty, and now restaurants to alter their menus.
