SAN ANTONIOH-E-B has put purchase limits on chicken wings.

Dya Campos, a spokesperson for the Texas grocer, told KSAT that “there is a national supply and demand wing issue. It’s not an H-E-B issue.”

The purchase limit, which only allows two packages of chicken wings per customer, is in effect at all H-E-B stores.

While the purchase limit is temporary, there is currently no set date for when the chicken wing supply issue will be remedied.

H-E-B is no stranger to purchasing limits. During the pandemic, H-E-B implemented purchase limits on a multitude of items in an effort to protect the supply chain and make sure all customers had access to the items they needed.
