Velveeta says shortage not a 'publicity stunt'

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON -

The Velveeta cheese shortage is no joke. Recently, Velveeta took to their Facebook page to confirm the rumors going around that many stores were running out of what they call “liquid gold” and would not be getting new shipments until a later date.

They went on to say that they are working to get more on the shelves as soon as possible. Officials with the company also assured people that this is not a “publicity stunt.”

FOX 5’s Beth Parker went around to local stores to see what the shortage looked like in our area and after three stores, she has seen no such shortage.

Velveeta does say the shortage is regional and this whole shortage rumor is said to have begun in New York when a journalist was unable to purchase Velveeta and the store told him they wouldn’t be getting it until February.

But Kraft assures its customers, Velveeta will be back on shelves in the coming weeks. For some tasty Velveeta recipes, visit its website.
