KFC is now running out of gravy in the UK

It has invited Twitter users in the United Kingdom and Ireland to click on #WheresMyChicken to find their nearest open KFC.

Now, before you get yourselves in to a flap - note the shortage looks to be in the United Kingdom and Ireland only.

The chicken chain was forced to close hundreds of restaurants last week due to widespread chicken shortages. The news outlet reported that KFC is facing problems with their new delivery system, DHL, after switching from Bidvest Logistics on February 14.

"Please do not contact us about the #KFCCrisis - it is not a police matter if your favourite eatery is not serving the menu that you desire", they said.

Little information was available about the cause or severity of the reported shortage of gravy or if it is a byproduct of the chicken delivery problems. "You're still getting KFC chicken at the end of the day".

Last Tuesday the store had no chicken on the bone, no mini fillets or lettuce, and was down to its last half-box of buns.

Earlier in the U.S. trading day, Federal Reserve chairman Jerome Powell was back for his second day of testimony before Congress. Stocks are turning sharply lower in afternoon trading as talk of steep tariffs on steel and aluminum spook investors.


The poultry blunder wasn't a paltry issue for Great Britain as it ruffled feathers throughout the island.

"We've brought a new delivery partner onboard, but they've had a couple of teething problems, getting fresh chicken out to 900 restaurants across the country is pretty complex!" the tweet reads.

Who knows how people will cope if the gravy runs out too. "It's not ideal. Thank you for bearing with us", read a newspaper ad from the company, which jumbled its lettering to read "FCK".

After receiving more similar calls, the police made an appeal to the public, requesting people to stop calling 999 to report the issue.

KFC has said that even though they've been able to open nearly all 900 stores, they "still have a number of our other usual ingredients missing".
