WEST DES MOINES – Hy-Vee, Inc. said Tuesday that it will begin limiting meat purchases on that effective Wednesday, May 6, at all of its locations.
A release from the company indicated that the move is being prompted due to worker shortages at processing plants.
“We continue to work with industry leaders so we are prepared for any possible fluctuations in product and can best serve our customers. At Hy-Vee, we have product available at our stores, but due to worker shortages at plants as well as an increase in meat sales, customers may not find the specific items they are looking for. Because of this, we are going to put a limit on customer purchases in the meat department. Effective Wednesday, May 6, each customer will be limited to four packages of a combination of fresh beef, ground beef, pork and chicken when they checkout at all Hy-Vee locations.
