The best part of McDonald’s is arguably their piping hot shoestring fries, but fans are in for disappointment as the chain is facing a french fry shortage.

According to an announcement on their social media, McDonald’s Malaysia will stop selling Large-sized meals starting today, 24th January 2022.

Customers will only be able to order a Medium-sized meal, which comes with Medium-sized fries and a Medium-sized drink.

The chain did not mention when sales of Large-sized fries will resume, but they do promise that “it’ll be back before you know it”, which we assume will mean hopefully as soon as they can.

It’s A Global Thing

Shockingly, Malaysia isn’t the only country going through a McD fries withdrawal.

Japan has also announced that they are facing a potato shortage, and they will only be selling small-sized French Fries for the time being. (How tragic!)

The global shortage is due to supply chain delays in Vancouver, Canada, where the chain’s beloved root vegetable comes from.

In the meantime, we’ll have have to sit tight and make each fry count.
