    “Due To A Poor Harvest Season, We Are Experiencing Shortages On Many Of Our Canned Vegetable Items” - The Economic Collapse

    I know that this headline is alarming, but it is actually a direct quote from a notice that was recently posted in a Kroger supermarket. And as you will see below, similar notices are being posted in the canned vegetable sections of Wal-Mart stores nationwide.

    For many months shelves at my local Dallas neighborhood market Wal-Mart have looked ransacked in spite of employees actively restocking. I have come to the conclusion that more and more people to feed are moving into this area - legally or ILLEGALLY !


    Here is a similar ZeroHedge article which also discusses with shortages come price increases.

    " Earlier today, I received a very detailed email from a reader that had some excellent intel about what was going on at his own local Wal-Mart. The following is an excerpt from what he sent to me…

    This is alarming in and of itself, however, they are experiencing shortages across most product categories. The only information I could find online was pointing to a driver shortage. I noticed the shortage over the holiday weekend and returned this past weekend to take a closer look. There were problems with paper products, OTC medications, pickles (everyone wanted pickles?), lunch meats and hot dogs, vinegar, produce, alcohol, eggs, cereal, and feminine hygiene products. None of these items had signs like those posted in canned veggies, instead there were small tags placed over the original price tag the say “out of stock” in very small print.

    While a driver shortage could cause issues, it’s a little odd to me that there are 12 packs of toilet paper and 6 packs of coke but no 24 packs of either. One of the items being restocked were more of the 12 packs of toilet paper. Does a driver shortage account for this? Another oddity is that one Walmart may have pickles but no tortillas while the exact opposite will be true for a different Walmart. The employees that would normally be stocking were instead counting products (manually) and pulling product to the front of the shelves. There was a six foot stretch of Cheerios along one shelf that was one box deep, hiding the empty shelves behind them.

    One more item to note is that the first trip I made over the fourth of July weekend was to purchase canned corn. They had 9 cans of what I was looking for so I purchased them all. The following weekend they had restocked the same corn (there were 10 cans) but the price had increased almost 30%! The original purchase was for $1.44 while one week later the price had increased to $1.88.


    Sadly, the economic law of supply and demand is going to continue to push prices higher.

    And the tighter that food supplies become, the higher prices will go.

    Since the mainstream media is being completely silent about this, many people on social media don’t have much information to go on. Speculation is rampant, and many are fearing the worst. "

    Speaking of Walmart... I like Walmart's own "Great Value" brand of canned chunk chicken and always have many cans in my pantry.

    Here in Dallas, the small cans cost under a dollar and they make yummy chicken salad [mixed with chopped pickles, mayo, seasoning and whatever else you like.] It's good served on bread [or hamburger buns], flour tortilla or crackers.

    However, last time I was at Walmart, I noticed the small cans now have pull-top lids. I don't know how that might affect long term storage ?

    As long as you don't stack then more than four or five high, wouldn't think they will have any issues.

    They are designed to tear along the scored line on the lid, but they still have to maintain an air-tight seal to meet canning requirements.

    I worked at a pet food plant and had to learn about the various packaging systems. Our standards were basically equal what the FDA mandated for human food. Amazing how much value people put on pets. Not saying it's wrong. Do it myself, but I figured I was just a bit of an odd duck.

    Thanks for the info.

    As for people and their pets. When I watch HGTV's real estate shows, it amazes me how many people will buy or not buy based on either the needs of their pets or their guests or both.

    I was at my local Dallas Neighborhood Market Walmart yesterday.
    They had the same sign near sparsely stocked cans of green beans.
    I noticed the expiration dates on those cans were less than two years
    from now... so even that might have been older stock.

    Never let a good conspiracy go to waste...............

    Get the suckers stirred up early, more money to be made.

    There will be a poor harvest, that is not in doubt.

    I would be more worried about not getting enough Biodiesel or Ethanol though.
