Cheesy shortage: Kraft says Velveeta running low

Posted Wednesday, January 8, 2014 --- 12:06 p.m.

NEW YORK (AP) — A Velveeta shortage could be a dent in your Super Bowl dip.

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

The company didn't give a reason for the apparent shortage.

The company has been airing commercials featuring a recipe for a chili con queso dip made with Velveeta.

The trade publication Ad Age reported the issue yesterday. Ad Age quotes an employee at a Brooklyn-area grocery store who doesn't expect to see Velveeta again until February, due to "a plant issue."
