Is it time to panic?

Taco Bell is having a tortilla shortage at many of their restaurants.

The shortage is apparently due to an issue with the company’s supplier, but it might even be bigger than that. The company did not confirm how many stores are being affected, only saying that "some Taco Bell restaurants" have been affected. 

People on social media claiming to be employees are saying that they will be out of stock through July.

A Taco Bell spokesperson said, "While some Taco Bell restaurants are experiencing supplier shortages, we are working diligently to replenish the supply of our tortillas (used for products like quesadillas and burritos) in those restaurants and encourage fans to try the Chalupa Cravings Box in the meantime. We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause and appreciate our customers' patience."
