KFC Australia forced to swap lettuce for cabbage
Image source, KFC.Fast food giant KFC has been forced to put cabbage in its burgers and wraps in Australia as the country is struggling with a shortage of lettuce. The firm told customers it is using a mixture of lettuce and cabbage after floods destroyed lettuce crops. Social media users have posted photos of lettuces costing over A$10, three times the usual price. On its website KFC Australia said: "Due to the recent floods in NSW and QLD [Queensland] we're currently experiencing a lettuce shortage. So, we're using a lettuce and cabbage blend on all products containing lettuce until further notice." "If that's not your bag, simply click 'Customise' on your chosen product and remove Lettuce from the Recipe," it added, signing off with a smiley face emoji.
