No need to panic, the American Farm Bureau issued a statement to reassure Americans that there are no chicken wing shortages heading into the Super Bowl weekend. Rumours of a chicken wing shortage before the big game sparked panic, but as it turns out - there is plenty of chicken wings to go around.
The love of football and food will be experienced in living rooms around America on Sunday, with the most food being consumed on that day, except for Thanksgiving. Interestingly enough, chicken production is down 1 percent year over year. Despite this, when you look at chicken wings only, there has been an increase of 68 percent from this time last year.
You can rest assured that there will be plenty of chicken wings to go around for Sundays game, so enjoy!
