NEW YORK (AP) — A cheese shortage?

Kraft Foods says some customers may not be able to find its Velveeta cheese over the next few weeks.

Company representative Jody Moore didn’t give any reasons for the apparent shortage, saying only that they happen from time to time given, quote “the nature of manufacturing.”

She notes that the lack of availability is more noticeable because of the seasonal demand during the NFL playoffs. The company has been airing TV commercials featuring a recipe for a chili con queso dip made with Velveeta. Moore says it should be a short-term situation.
