According to supermarketnews.com, more than 20 meatpacking plants around the U.S. have closed at some point in the past two months, reducing pork production by about a quarter and cutting beef output by about 10%.

This has caused some national food chains to limit the amount of meat each customer can purchase. In Middle Tennessee, Kroger and Costco have established limits on items such as beef, pork and chicken.

Kroger stores have implemented temporary purchase limits on beef, poultry and pork.

“At Kroger we feel good about our ability to maintain a broad assortment of meat and seafood for our customers because we purchase protein from a diverse network of suppliers. There is plenty of protein in the supply chain; however, some processors are experiencing challenges. At this time, we’ve added temporary purchase limits on fresh beef, ground beef, poultry and pork to ensure all customers continue to have access to these products,” said Kroger spokesperson Melissa Eads.
