McDonald’s warns ingredients might be missing from meals due to Brexit

McDonald's has warned customers it may soon run out of some ingredients due to Brexit.

Posters have been spotted outside selected McDonald's restaurants across the UK warning customers that the likes of tomato and lettuce might be off the menu.

Snaps of the sign were shared on on social media, sparking desperate reactions.

The poster photographed on restaurant windows and drive thru boards, reads: "Due to supply challenges following Brexit, some of our menu may be unavailable or have ingredients missing, e.g. Lettuce, Tomato."

The sign concludes: "Please ask a member of staff for further details."

One Twitter user captioned a photo of the sign saying "So it begins", another wrote "Tier Four in Portsmouth and McDonald's apparently running out of vegetables thanks to Brexit".

@Munkeycop from Bournemouth tweeted: "Just saw this on the front of a McDonalds. It’s reassuring that the biggest fast food chain in the UK is struggling to source basic ingredients like lettuce and tomatoes because of f****** Brexit".

McDonald's has confirmed that the posters were distributed to a number of restaurants across the UK last week as a 'contingency measure'.

But the fast food chain is understood to have since told restaurant teams they are no longer needed as it is not currently anticipating any supply issues.

A trade deal was finally agreed between the UK and European Union on Christmas Eve, which will officially take effect on January 1.

The letter, organised by the British Retail Consortium, warned millions of consumers could be impacted by 'significant disruption' to supply chains of goods.

Daily Star has approached McDonald's for a comment.
