Due to supply chain bottlenecks, McDonald’s (NYSE: MCD) Holdings Company Japan said on Tuesday that it would ban the sale of medium and large-sized french fries for a week beginning on Friday.

Potato shipments are being delayed due to supply chain concerns caused by the COVID-19 epidemic, as well as transportation disruptions in Canada.

According to the company, the potatoes used to make the french fries are sourced from North America. French fries in small sizes will continue to be available, according to the renowned fast-food chain.

The financial impact of the interim stoppage was not quantified by the corporation.
